We have 19 individual apartments. Our shelter is close to neighbourhood schools, a pool, shopping centres, and has an easy access to public transportation.

A cornerstone intervention to help children meet their developmental milestones and utilizes sensory play, arts and crafts, general play, reading, and songs.

The CDC is also used as a trauma informed childcare space to support other programs for mothers.
