CREATING SAFE COMMUNITIES

Our mission is to create a safe Northern society for women and families to reach their full potential.

For more than 50 years, we have worked with women and families to help them move from crisis to stability in a supportive, caring environment. If you are experiencing abuse, are looking for family housing, or interested in after-school childcare or youth programs: we can help.
