Hestia House offers shelter, safety and support for abused women and their children in a secure setting. Contact our 24-hour distress line that for support or to discuss your options.
Counselling is also an important part of the transition house experience. Staff counselling helps women:
understand the nature of the abusive relationship
clearly see their own situation so they can make informed decision.
The staff is there to provide a link to available community services. The strength and tenacity of our clients in spite of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, is truly remarkable. Once believed, heard and validated; women start to make decisions.
We can help provide referrals to appropriate agencies based on your individual needs. This may include legal, housing and financial assistance.
