Mission: We provide opportunities for women, fem-identifying individuals, and their children to create a life free from intimate partner violence by offering safe second stage housing, counselling, and support services.

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, they lack alternative housing, or other barriers are standing in their way. 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. We do what we can to remove the barriers standing in their way so they can reach their full potential.

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. We also offer programs designed to help women break the cycle of violence in their lives and transition to independent living. Over the last several decades of operation, Alice House has gained valuable knowledge regarding the variety and complexity of needs confronted by women as they heal from abuse.
