Ada’s Place Second Stage Housing Program
The second stage housing program is secure independent housing for women, with or without children, who have experienced intimate partner violence/abuse and whose income levels are low to moderate. We will prioritize those who are fleeing current violence from an intimate partner and who wish to stay in the community.
The Second Stage program accommodation consists of studio, two and three bedroom furnished apartments. Women living in Second Stage receive programming and supports that are intended to help them move forward in their lives in a healing, healthy and meaningful direction. Typical length of stay in our Second Stage program is anywhere from 6-18 months, potentially up to 2 years.
What does it cost?
Rent is either 30% of your gross household income from employment or other sources, or if you receive income assistance the rent is based on the maximum shelter allowance portion. Hydro and Wi-Fi are included.
