YW Sheriff King Home Crisis Shelter

YW Sheriff King Home is a short-stay crisis shelter for women and their children leaving domestic abuse and violence. The shelter provides basic needs, including food and personal items, as well as individual domestic abuse counselling and support.


During their stay and afterwards, women and children can also access one-on-one support and referrals to help children understand and make sense of their experiences and feelings in a safe and supportive environment.


Women leaving shelter and moving to the community can continue to receive support from the YW Outreach Supports team, who help them navigate the system and connect them with resources for housing programs, legal services and education support as they build a safe, secure life. We also refer women to our safe visitation program.
