The Halfway House

The Business & Professional Women’s Club established a Halfway House in 1986 as a non-governmental project offering a safe place of shelter to women and children who are victims of domestic violence, battered women, abused children and victims of sexual assault.

Referrals are made by hospital personnel, medical social workers, psychiatric social workers, police services, probation officers, and NGOs.

The Halfway House offers a secure and supporting atmosphere in which battered women and children receive food and shelter, professional counselling services, and legal assistance.

We try, where possible, to assist them in settling into the community after they leave the home.
