Pauline's Place is a 19 bed shelter that provides emergency short term housing for youth, women, and families who are experiencing a housing crisis.
Pauline's Place addresses homelessness for Youth (male ages 16-17, female ages 16-21), Women, and Families by providing temporary emergency shelter and basic necessities such as food, clothing, and hygiene products. With the help of external supports, we further assist clients to secure and maintain permanent housing.
Our shelter capacity provides 7 emergency beds for youth, 12 emergency beds for women, 1 room for accessibility and 2 emergency units for families. Through the provision of emergency and short term housing, referral and outreach services, Pauline's Place will assist and support clients to make the transition to becoming stable and active members of the community.
This is accomplished by:
-Supports based on the unique needs of the individual
-Non-judgmental approach to service delivery
-A coordinated approach to service delivery
-Liaison with community resources to provide continuing support and advocacy
-Public awareness of the causes of homelessness and those at risk.
