Our Values


We believe in unconditional love and non-judgmental acceptance of all people. We provide encouragement, support and understanding. We are committed to helping people choose a life free of abuse and violence.


We believe everyone has a right to live in a safe environment. We continually strive to provide this for our clients, volunteers, and employees.


We believe that knowledge and understanding of domestic abuse and violence enables people to respond with compassion and empathy. By promoting awareness and positive relationships we will help improve the lives of the people we serve.


We hold each person’s story in trust and share only when appropriate and with permission as per federal and provincial laws (“PIPPA”). All information about our clients are held in the strictest confidence.


We believe that by providing our clients with a safe and supportive environment they will find hope and positive solutions to their situation.


We are prudent stewards of all the resources we receive.
