New website connects abused women to shelters across Canada.
Help is just a click away.
If you are a woman experiencing abuse, there is someone you can reach out to any time of day or night.
WHAT IS SHELTERSAFE.CA?
ShelterSafe.ca is an online resource to help women and their children seeking safety from violence and abuse. The clickable map will serve as a fast resource to connect women with the nearest shelter that can offer safety, hope and support.
Our objective is to ensure that women can seek safety when they need it. Sheltersafe.ca allows you to quickly identify a shelter in a specific geographic area along with its 24 hour emergency phone number. We want to ensure that women get the services they need as quickly as possible. Abused women are most at-risk of extreme violence when they are preparing to leave an abusive relationship.
This resource is for women directly impacted by violence as well as for their concerned friends, family, colleagues and employers. Sheltersafe.ca is an initiative of the Canadian Network of Women’s Shelters & Transition Houses.
A map is not only a tool but it is a reminder of the safety net created across Canada to serve victims of domestic violence.
