call as often as you like

24-Hour Crisis Line

Shelter counsellors are available 24 hours per day to respond to calls from individuals seeking information, support, counselling, or shelter. The crisis line is often the first point of contact for women who are thinking of leaving or planning to leave an abusive relationship. All of our services are confidential. Women can call us as often as they like for as long as they require support.

This line is also available to people who call for information about a friend or loved one that they are concerned about, and to community agencies calling on behalf of a client.

Counsellors at Cara House must speak directly with the woman before she can be admitted to the shelter.
