Safe Place To Stay

Women’s Place is a safe haven with security provisions necessary to help women and children who have been abused.

You can stay there for no cost for the time you need to get through the crisis or the abuse, to have respite from the harm, and to decide your next steps.

Professional counsellors are there 24 hours a day to help.

They listen, assess risk, help you safety plan, and connect you with services to help you reach your hopes and dreams.

There is emergency transportation to safety from anywhere in
St. Thomas and Elgin County.
