A SAFE HAVEN

Discovery House provides safe housing and essential support for women and children fleeing domestic violence as they transition out of short-term emergency shelters or are referred to us.

Each year, we house hundreds of families in our secure apartment complex, through our Community Housing Program (CHP) in affordable rental properties throughout the city, and in one single family dwelling, Rosie’s House, for larger families.

The Discovery House shelter is located in Calgary, Alberta, and contains 19 individual and furnished apartments at an undisclosed location. It has a double-locked door, 24-hour security, secure underground parking, laundry rooms on each floor, and shared community spaces that include:

  • A common room, with a TV and couches
  • A secure outdoor courtyard, with a playground, community garden, and seating area
  • A computer room with two computers for tutoring or client paperwork
  • A safe and secure Child Development Centre staffed with child development workers, with toys, books, and craft supplies
  • A small library with books for all ages
