Providing a Safe Space and Ongoing Support
Alpha House is a year-long program for women and their children leaving an abusive relationship. We provide protective and affordable fully furnished housing; individual and group counselling for women and all age appropriate children; family counselling; support and advocacy; family activities; children’s summer activity programming; follow up counselling and support.
Our mandate is to not only provide a safe place for families to live while transitioning away from violence, but to work closely with the families to break the cycle of violence. We help women to build their self-confidence and self-reliance so that they can live independently and flourish as examples to themselves, their children and other women. We give children an opportunity to work through their feelings and to develop healthy coping skills and the ability to trust.

Our Success Depends on you
The five year vision for Alpha House Project is to completely refurbish the building and have a replacement plan in place for larger maintenance issues; provide a more ‘home-like’ atmosphere for residents; grow the programs offered and staff facilitating them; and to expand either by purchasing and running another property or moving to a larger location.
Break the Cycle
We know it’s not going to be easy, but if you’re committed to making this positive change in your life and the lives of your children then we’re committed to doing everything in our power to make sure that you’re equipped to succeed.
