Yellow Brick House is committed to rebuilding the lives of abused women and children in York Region. With our team of dedicated counsellors, educators, administration staff and volunteers we work hard to ensure women and children have a safe place to turn to if they become victims of domestic abuse.
Yellow Brick House provides four core services for all: emergency shelter, transitional housing, outreach services and public education. The two emergency shelters offer safe places for women and children fleeing their abusive relationships. Reta’s Place, our transitional housing facility, provides housing units to women and children transitioning from the emergency shelter to living independently. Outreach services offer an array of programs to women and their children in various stages of their abusive relationship. The Violence Prevention and Public Education Program raises awareness of the prevalence and devastating effects of domestic violence, and reinforces our community presence so that those affected know where to turn.
Services are available in 31 languages, are free of charge and fully confidential.
