Since 1987, Harmony House has been helping women and children flee violence and live safely. As Ottawa’s only second-stage women’s shelter, we bridge the gap between a woman living in crisis to eventually living independently in the community.
We are able to do that by providing safe, affordable transitional housing coupled with many programs, counselling and other supports needed to work through trauma and learn how to become empowered to be independent.
At Harmony House, we aim to break the cycle of women returning to abusive people because they are afraid or feel unworthy of the alternative. We empower, inspire and RISE women and children up so they can be their best selves and live a life free of violence and oppression.
