HER Build

Our new, secure, fully accessible 24,000 square foot complex is based on ‘designed for health’ building standards. This exciting, evidence based design is a first for VAW shelters in Canada, featuring two distinct but linked buildings.

An emergency residence with 17 bedrooms and the capacity to house between 30 – 40 women and their children – plus a first in the Toronto area – a kennel for their pets.

A community service hub with wrap-around services offering violence-prevention programming and trauma-specific care and services to support both residents and women from the surrounding community.
