HERS – Haliburton Emergency Rural SafeSpace

HERS provides two independent living units so that women and their children can move away from the abusive situation in their home, without leaving the support systems, jobs and schools, families and friends behind.

We also provide clinical counselling/therapy, information about housing and income supports, assistance navigating the Family and Criminal Court systems and more.

We encourage you to contact us directly for more information.

Our shelters rely on donor funding for their operation.  As government and other agency funding is decreasing the demand for our services are increasing. To find out more about how you can bridge this gap and help save and change the lives of countless women and children in our communities, please contact us.
