Shelter Services

The Women & Children’s Shelter of Barrie provides emergency shelter 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Our shelter can accommodate 27 women and children; each family has their own room and share communal living space with other families. We accept self-referrals and referrals from community agencies, law enforcement, and other shelters and social services.  There are community services available through The Safe Pet Program for women who want to take their pets with them when they leave.
