WIN House

"WIN House provides a safe place and emergency services for women and children fleeing domestic abuse. Through comprehensive programs, support and advocacy, we’re shifting the scales. As a safe haven for victims, we connect and equip individuals with the support and hope they need to overcome an abusive situation. We’re focused on what we can do to support Edmonton’s domestic abuse victims and their families. Together, we will make victims victorious."

About This Cause

Throughout Edmonton and area, for nearly five decades, we’ve given women and children of all ages and cultures a safe place to flee. From passionate professionals and volunteers to dedicated donors and champions of the cause, WIN House is committed to providing safety, support, relief and resources for abuse victims.

Client Programs:

24-hour Helpline
Thousands of women and children rely on the WIN House Helpline each year.

Crisis Intervention
From frontline response services and emergency shelter to emotional support and support groups, we’re here when clients need us most.

Child Support
This program helps children and youth of all ages with schooling and childcare when needed.

Pet Program
Clients can focus on their journey knowing their pets are taken care of through the Alberta SPCA’s Pet Safekeeping program.

Intensive Case Counselling Program
Some cases benefit more from one-on-one work in the community
rather than admission to our shelter. This is what our Intensive Case Counsellors do best.

Outreach & Planning
Our Outreach Workers provide emotional and practical support, with clients both in shelter and after departure. They help victims rebuild through court support, referrals to community resources and assistance with joining/attending group meetings.

Community Programs:

Donation Program
Financial and in-kind donations give women and their children basic necessities during and after their stay at WIN House. Last year 204 families accessed the clothing room during their stay, and we provided 78 household packages to women and children leaving the shelter.

Volunteer Programs
Volunteers are an instrumental part of our organization, helping out in the office and at events. In the 2015-2016 fiscal year, volunteers contributed nearly 900 hours to WIN House.

Public Education Program
A powerful way we make an impact is through education. Our free presentation is available for everyone, no matter the group size (please contact to book in advance).
