As we respond to the needs of our community, the Refuge closed support groups may change topics as  the needs of the participants change.

Mentorship

The role of a mentor is to provide mentorship to women in the community who are currently participating in the programs through the Refuge.

Play Cafe is a play space where children and their families can connect, learn and grow through the power of play and imagination. Play Cafe was created out of desire to provide both adults and children with space for meaningful interactions.
 

We are committed to nurturing play, imagination and early learning in children while providing a clean, safe environment for children to explore, be creative and have fun!
