Dixon House provides a safe and supportive environment where women can access resources including finding alternative accommodation.
Women receive unconditional support and advocacy 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a home environment. Dixon House provides women and their children safety, emotional support, parenting support, resource information, networking, advocacy, and crisis counselling. Children’s programs are also available.
Our staff also provide advocacy to assist women with obtaining financial assistance, accessing to Multicultural Support Services, obtaining legal assistance, and finding housing. Many former clients keep in touch and regularly visit and access supports and services after their departure. Clients are referred to us from various sources throughout the Greater Vancouver area.
We would like to acknowledge the support of the following groups whose support makes our programs a possibility.
