Gillian’s Place

Social Service


For over 40 years, Gillian’s Place has been providing safe haven to women, non-binary folks, and their children escaping the cycle of violence and abuse. Beyond our 34-bed emergency shelter, Gillian’s Place offers a wide spectrum of free and confidential support services to women and children living within our community. These services include a 24/7 crisis support line, expert counselling, child and youth programs, legal advocacy and support, education and violence prevention programs, and a transitional support and housing program.

Our Impact

Gillian’s Place provides safe shelter and support services to thousands of women, non-binary folks, and children in the Niagara Region each year. Last year, we sheltered 196 women, non-binary folks and their children, answered 5,562 calls on our crisis line, and provided support to an additional 3,313 women, non-binary folks, and their children through our outreach services, helping them to reach their goals of living a life free from violence and abuse.

How your gift will be used

Legacy and planned gifts provide sustainable funding for our organization, enabling us to expand our programming to provide essential services to more women, non-binary folks, and children.
