Potential Board Members will share our commitment to breaking the cycle of violence and our concern about the lack of affordable safe housing.

Our current central program is Margaret Laurence House which provides second stage housing and support for women and their children leaving abusive relationships.

Our goal is to provide a safe place where women’s values are accepted and respected.
