From the comfort and safety of their own apartments, Marguerite’s Place assists women move toward independence. We follow a trauma-informed, holistic approach and provide around-the-clock on-site staff. We provide women with tools and knowledge to develop healthy relationships, skills, and community connections to navigate challenges and crisis.

To promote a sense of community, women participate in a weekly resident meal and meeting. Women engage with our housing support staff to develop personal action and support plans. Referrals are made to community services to support these plans. Individuals are encouraged to participate in any of the programs offered through the St. John’s Women’s Centre.

Each self-contained apartment has its own bathroom and kitchen. A communal space invites connection and the chance to enjoy the company of neighbours.

Women are invited to stay in our accessible, fully furnished bachelorette suites for up to three years. Our on-site social worker assists with transition planning from our program and continues to support individuals through outreach and system navigation after they transition to independent living.

Designed to meet the needs of single women over the age of 30 without dependents in their care and living on low income, we assist women who want additional support to maintain housing.
