Our Cause
FUNDRAISING GOAL : $5000

All money raised will be put into the two programs that Discovery House offers: the Community Housing, and Residential program.

 

Residential Housing Program

Discovery House's residential facility has 19 apartments and is the most secure shelter in Alberta. The average stay at Discovery House is approximately six months (but families can reside up to 12 months based on circumstances) and during this time each adult and child is given a full range of integrated services. These include individual and group counselling, safety planning, education, referrals, developmental assessments for children, advocacy, and life skills training. They help clients enhance self-esteem, confidence and empathy. Discovery House’s Residential Housing program is all inclusive and we accept clients from any cultural, ethnic, or faith background.

 

Community Housing Program

In the Community Housing program we use the Housing First model to place families who are dually impacted by homelessness and domestic violence in permanent stable housing first and then provide mental health assessments, financial, emotional and practical supports, case management, home-based counselling, referrals, and support services. Case managers work with families to develop safety plans, connect with longer-term support services, and navigate through complex social services networks.

 

 

You can help us reach our goal in three different ways:

  3. Raise awareness to our cause by clicking the “Share” or “Tweet” button.

OUR MISSION

Discovery House provides integrated residential and community services for abused women and children to enable them to live safely in the community.
