An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until 27 Nov 2021

A Safe Place Drop-In

A Safe Place Drop-In

A Safe Place offers low-barrier, after-hours and weekend services to marginalized women and their children experiencing precarious housing, food insecurity, and/or mental ill health in Whitehorse.

Program participants are normally provided facilitated drop-in programming and a hot nutritious meal. Skilled staff respond to the needs expressed by participants, provide referrals to other services and supports, and help coordinate program services.

Due to COVID guidelines and our limited indoor-space, we are not currently able to gather for group programming at the Centre. Since COVID hit our community we have continued to offer the meal portion of this program on a take-out basis. We are working hard to bring back the valued drop-in portion of his program, which is at the heart of our community engagement and outreach. 

The goals of A Safe Place are:

  • To provide housing insecure Whitehorse women and their children with a safe place when other supportive agencies are closed or felt to be unsafe.
  • To provide Whitehorse women and their children with a hot, nutritious meal when other supportive agencies are closed or are felt to be unsafe.
  • To establish trust with women facing homelessness and/or mental ill health in a safer women-only space and provide links to other agencies which provide support/services to Whitehorse women who have ‘fallen through the cracks’.
