Haven Transition House provides temporary shelter and support for women and their children who have experienced violence and are seeking safety while exploring their options.
Women from all walks of life and backgrounds come to the Transition House. Trauma in families can result from many forms of emotional, physical, sexual, verbal, financial and psychological abuses.
At Haven Transition House, all forms of violence are taken seriously. Transition House staff assist resident parents and their children in understanding and coping with effects of family violence.
The Haven Transition House is a safe environment that provides crisis support, referral services, children’s counselling, parenting skills, individual and group support, and we couldn’t do what we do without donations from the community who make our Transition House, Parksville Qualicum Haven House and children’s programs warm and safe places to be.
