The number of people fleeing violence may be on the rise, but we're on the rise too.

Stand with WIN House and our Champions! 67% of Canadians know a woman who has been abused. You can empower Champions to rise up and win. Since 1968, WIN House has helped local women break the grip of abuse with life-changing support and resources.

Many multicolored umbrellas are floating in a light blue sky with white clouds.

WE BELIEVE all people deserve to feel safe at home, but the reality is, thousands of women, non-binary individuals, and children across Canada do not.

We provide crisis intervention, safe housing, and education to empower individuals experiencing violence, and encourage their new start. WIN House provides support from the moment someone calls to well after leaving the shelters. 

 

We believe all people can change their journey. 

With your support, WIN House is able to continue to provide and expand ongoing programs and services that secure a future free of violence for the Champions we serve.

Our Language

You may notice that we don't refer to the individuals we support as victims or survivors - we use "people we serve", or "Champions".

Champions are brave. They also know one decision can make all the difference. Champions struggle as much as they win. BUT the one thing that Champions have in common is that they have people in their corner. That is the biggest support we can offer to everyone who walks through our doors: to ensure them they are safe and we are in their corner. 

 

Thanks for being there with us.

WIN House knows that trans women are women. All people fleeing violence who identify as a woman or are non-binary are accepted. We offer a safe and inclusive space, without exception.
