Striving for a community free of relationship violence and abuse, the Transition House, working collaboratively, provides quality shelter, support, counselling and education to women and children so that they can live free from the effects of abuse in intimate relationships. Since 1974, we have provided shelter and services for women, with or without children, who are experiencing abuse in intimate relationships. Programs include: *24-hour crisis line; shelter services *in-house children's programs *children who witness abuse program *stopping the violence counselling program *spousal assault victim support program *training and community education. On average, each year we provide emergency shelter and counselling to 275 women and 190 children who accompany their mother to our Shelter. In addition, over 450 women and 100 children receive our community outreach counselling services annually. Community Support in Action: We couldn't do it without you.
