Transitional Support Program

The aim of this program is to assist women in developing a transition plan towards a non-violent, non-abusive life in the community. This includes developing a safety plan and seeking out available support systems. Our Transitional Support Worker will assist women in developing a Transition Plan which may include referrals to other agencies in the community. The Transitional Support Worker will also assist a woman by acting as an advocate on her behalf in seeking assistance and tapping resources within the community in the areas of housing, education, job training, income support, legal aid and legal representation, Children’s Aid advocacy, transportation and child care. This group offers its members a forum in which they can discuss their current concerns. Members learn how to cope more effectively with their issues, and will be given the opportunity to build skills through the support of other members. Free Childcare and transportation is available for women attending the Transitional Support Group if arrangements are made by calling Women’s House in advance.
