The Brenda Strafford Centre serves people at risk of family violence through providing a safe housing environment and comprehensive support services for its residents so that they can live safely in the community upon their departure from the Centre.
A community free from family violence.
We support people at risk who have experienced family violence to live safely and successfully in our community.
- To provide flexible, accessible, low-cost, and secure transitional
housing and support services for women with their children who
have been assessed by crisis shelters.
- To decrease the length of stay and frequency of re-admission
of women who are housed in shelters and have decided to leave
their abusive situation but for whom housing and security are
the primary barriers to departure.
- To achieve long-term stability for women with their children who
have been subjected to violence.
