Transitional Housing & Outreach Support Program
The Transitional Housing and Outreach (TH&OS) Program provides support to women and children who are currently experiencing, or who have experienced violence, and are presently living in the community. The program also provides counselling, advocacy, and access to our food bank, as well as legal, housing, and resource allocation supports. The primary goal of the TH&OS Program is to provide support to women and children as they find and secure affordable housing. In addition, the program counsellors plan and facilitate community workshops and special events.
This year, Ernestine’s launched a pilot program called “Let’s Chat”, led by our TH&O counsellors to expand on our counselling supports to the outreach clients within the community. It entails a weekly drop-in program for women to talk about any issues they are currently experiencing, such as difficulties with navigating the legal system, as well as a workshop that takes place once a month. This pilot program was incredibly successful and we are thrilled to be able to implement it into our regular programming.
