About Us

Life without safety is a life without basic needs being met. Despite this, individuals often remain in abusive situations because they do not perceive the situation as remediable or because they lack alternative housing. Alice House provides opportunities for women and their children to create a life free from intimate partner violence by offering safe housing, counselling, and support services. Families are able to reclaim their lives and ensure that intimate partner violence does not frame their future or define their legacy.
Physical and emotional healing require time and support in a safe, stable environment. For this reason, Alice House provides longer term housing than emergency shelters. Women are welcome to stay in our apartments and townhouses anywhere from three months to two years. Our programs are designed to help women break the cycle of violence in their lives and transition to independent living.
