Families come to the Shelter through a referral from agencies such as Children’s Aid Societies, Public Health Department, Police Services, other shelters, through word of mouth upon the advice of friends. Within approximately three months most families are re-established back to independent living. Individual circumstances and needs determine the length of stay; some families stay overnight while others live at the Shelter for as long as six months.
