Over the years, there has been much “mystery” surrounding women’s shelters. This is most likely because women’s shelters have a responsiblity to protect the confidentiality of the individuals we serve, as well as for safety reasons.
It is our hope that this website will help answer many of the questions you may have with regards to Harbour House and other women’s shelters – as well as domestic violence in general. For example, are you interested in learning what some of the "warning signs" of being in an abusive relationship are? If so, click on our "Warning Signs" page.
If you are being abused or if you know of someone who is being abused, please contact our distress line at 902-543-3999 or toll free at 1-888-543-3999.
