The Denise House/Sedna Women’s Shelter & Support Services Inc. Charitable Donation #10796 5691 RR0001

Our Statement Regarding COVID-19

The Denise House remains committed to supporting women and children impacted by violence. Their safety and security, as well as staff, is our main priority. We are monitoring Public Health information and are taking all appropriate precautions to ensure we are able to maintain a safe level of services.

During these difficult times, our essential services are open to support women with or without children who are experiencing violence and abuse. We manage our bed counts and capacity issues daily and the availability of beds can change frequently. We do not want the fear that a bed might not be available to stop you from reaching out to us for support. Our trained and experienced counselors are there to take your calls 24/7, helping you identify your options and resources.

You are not alone!
If you need us, please call our 24 hour crisis line at 1-800-263-3725


Twenty-four Hour Crisis Prevention

The shelter offers a 24-hour crisis line and is staffed 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
