Transitional Support

Your support team is right here.  We'll offer you a warm tea or coffee. We'll listen to you. What do you need?  A safety plan? Legal Help? Support from others who've been through this too? Do you have kids?  What are their needs?

We offer individual support and goal planning to assist you. We are inclusive, non-violent, anti-racist and anti-oppressive. All are welcome here.
