Joy's Place

Joy’s Place is a second stage transition home that provides temporary subsided supportive housing to facilitate security, independence, self-sufficiency and personal growth for women and children who have experienced violence. Independent living units and suites are available for women (and their children 10 and under) seeking safety from family violence. Tenants are supported through information, advocacy, victim services, family law matters, workshops and counselling. One vital support that we provide is to help all of our tenants develop a personal success plan. This plan allows tenants to work on their goals independently and also understand in which areas they might require extra support. The personal success plan template can be found by clicking this link. Tenants may stay up to one year.

Referrals are generally made through a first stage transition house.  For more information please email:
