safe harbour emergency shelter
The Emergency Shelter program began in 1975 as the very first service offered by The Harbour. Nearly 40 years later, the shelter has undergone several changes to better meet the needs of youth in the community.
Now open to girls ages 12-21, the Shelter program works with girls and their families to stabilize their situations and ensure that they receive necessary services. The Shelter program prevents family violence and child abuse by providing crisis intervention and conflict resolution designed to strengthen the ability of youth and families to engage, feel supported, see progress and come to a resolution.
When youth can't return home, we work with them to identify an alternative safe placement - which may be our own Youth in Transition program.
