Women’s Place

The Sources Women’s Place helps women and their children overcome violence, trauma and or/poverty issues by empowering them with information, resources and tools so that they can be in charge of their own lives. For many women and their children, the Women’s Place is the initial contact for women coping with these issues and may be the first safe place they’ve experienced. We understand how overwhelming it can be to take the first step, and to reach out. We also understand that the challenges faced by women in these situations include not only emotional support but help with daily essentials. We are proud to be able to provide a wide range of help, from counselling and support groups, to legal aid, and even hot showers, laundry, clothing and a healthy lunch.
