You’ve taken the first step. You are hopeful, resilient, and resourceful. We’re here to help you get your life back on track. Start your journey to peace now. Start down a new path.
Joy’s Place is our second stage transition home that provides a safe haven for women and children who have experienced violence. At Joy’s Place, you receive temporary, subsidized, supportive housing that allows you to focus on your own strengths, resilience, independence, self-sufficiency, and security.
Joy’s Place is a secure place for personal growth.
Women (and their children 10 years of age and under) who have experienced violence can stay in independent living units or suites, safely away from the threat of family violence. While at Joy’s Place, we support you through information sharing, education, advocacy, Victim Services, family law support, workshops, and counselling. You’re ready to move on and we’re here to give you the tools to do it. Residents may stay at Joy’s Place for up to one year.
A vital component of your time at Joy’s Place is that you develop a personal success plan. We support all our residents with working on their goals both independently and in areas in which they might need assistance. We also work with you to help you increase your already-evident resilience and resourcefulness and focus on your confidence in moving forward.
Please note that second stage housing at Joy’s Place usually requires a referral from a first stage transition home.
