About Sage Haven Society

We invite you to help us to provide shelter and support for the members of our community who find themselves hungry and homeless. We offer emergency short term housing for women and their children who are at risk of or, who have experienced intimate partner violence and abuse. In the summer of 2023 we will be opening a 22 unit Second Stage housing project for women and children impacted by violence. Through our Community Resource Drop In Centre, we provide warmth, acceptance, and day-time shelter from the cold. A place where everyone is welcome.
