Odyssey House Grande Prairie - Serenity House Supportive Housing

Tragically, freedom from violence is a long road. A few weeks in a shelter isn’t enough to heal the scars of abuse, or to lay a foundation for an independent life. With that in mind, we built a Transitional Supportive Second-Stage Shelter, Serenity Place, a new 14-unit apartment building to meet that larger need. We offer 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments with the help of our ‘flex units.’ Each apartment is fully furnished with all the necessities from furniture, bedding, dishes, etc. Utilities included in the rent. Rent is based on the Alberta Works Core Funding for Shelter or 30% of their income. Pets are allowed. Women can apply to stay for anywhere from six to twenty-four months, depending on their unique circumstances. Construction was completed in 2015 and we opened our doors to residents in January 2016 Second-Stage shelters provide a supportive independent home for women and their children. There are a total of 14 Second-Stage Shelters in Alberta.
