  • What is it like? +

    Moose Jaw Transition House is located in a quiet residential area and looks very much like the other homes around it. It is a six bedroom house with a kitchen, dining room and family room much like a normal family home. There is an indoor playroom for the children and a play structure in the backyard. There are security features to ensure the safety of the families who stay here.
  • What's expected of me while I stay there? +

    All clients are responsible to keep their own rooms clean, clean up messes made by their family and participate in household chores. Women are expected to attend in-house programming and all clients will respect our abuse-free environment. While staying in the shelter, you are free to come and go as necessary, but for your safety, staff do need to be informed of your whereabouts.
