Success Stories

Transition Houses/Shelters

A transition house is a safe place for abused women and their children to get away from abuse at home. The staff at the transition house can provide counselling and give her information about legal options and social services. Transition houses are open 24 hours every day, seven days a week. An abused woman and her children can stay there free of charge for about one month.

Staff at the transition house can help her through a time of crisis. She can call the transition house and get advice, support and referrals over the phone even if she does not plan to go there. They do not need to know her name. Also most shelters will schedule appointments for women who just need to come in and talk. Anyone can call a shelter to get information - male and female. If you are a supporter, relative, friend, co-worker, or even supervisor of someone you feel is in a dangerous situation and you don’t know how to be helpful, you can call your shelter and explain what your concerns are and they can help you come up with the best response possible - even if you want to remain anonymous. Shelters also provide education to their local community, so if you would like to learn more, contact them directly to arrange a presentation.
