Group Name: Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter – Counselling
Description: Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter (EWS) was opened in 1983 by a group of community members who saw a need for a safe place for women and children fleeing violence. Since that time, Ernestine’s has assisted many families with critical immediate care services. Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter, an organization run by women, provides support and shelter for women and children escaping violence. Ernestine’s assists women and children in rebuilding their lives by providing crisis intervention and a range of holistic support services, while acknowledging the multitude of issues facing survivors of abuse. Ernestine’s adapts its services to honour diversity and the unique needs of the individual.
Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter provides 24-hour crisis and supportive counselling to women and children.
Counsellors work with clients to rebuild their lives by helping them set goals for the future and make plans to achieve those goals. The counsellors provide referrals and connect clients to resources.
