Women’s Shelter

Women who are in abusive relationships and can no longer remain at home can seek refuge in the Women’s Shelter. Whether a woman suffers physical or mental abuse or is subjected to sexual abuse, she can call the Women’s Shelter at any time day or night. Women may stay one night, several days, or for a longer period if necessary. Here they can obtain advice and counselling.

Children are also welcome. The Women’s Shelter has a registered children’s counsellor on staff that can help the children discuss their concerns. All matters are held in confidence.
