Description of project

The Safe Suite program provides temporary housing for men, women and couples, 55 years of age or older who are in need of a safe place to stay due to abuse or neglect and whose needs cannot be effectively met by existing abuse/crisis services. Abuse may be physical, emotional/ psychological, sexual, financial or neglect. The program was launched in October 2006.

Safe Suite clients receive the following services:
• Safety planning, counselling and obtaining orders of protection provided by Registered Social Work staff
• Furnished accommodations for up to 60 days at no cost
• Victoria Lifeline service
• Practical assistance with arranging finances, housing, legal and support services

Client Testimonials:
"Being in the Safe Suite gave me time to realize just how abused I was. I appreciate that you let me have my cat, I wouldn't have left without him."

"This program gave me the peace/piece I needed and after that everything just fell in place so perfectly."

"The Safe Suite made a big difference in my life. I met wonderful people who provided care for me."

"I knew my son could not find me while I stayed in the Safe Suite."

"I will feel safe (when I leave the suite) because I was taught what to do and how to stay safe."
