Auberge Transition is a feminist organization whose primary mandate is to offer shelter, information, counselling and follow-up services inclusive to all women who are currently experiencing or have experienced any form of intimate partner violence. Auberge Transition serves all women, with or without children, of all cultures and backgrounds.
Through public education we inform the community about the nature and extent of the problem of intimate partner violence, the myths and stereotypes that often surround it and the routes available to address abuse. As such, we aim to break the isolation and inform as many people as possible that help is available at all times for women and their children.
Our services offered to victims :
- Safe accommodation; short and medium stays (up to 3 months).
- Follow-up with a counselor assigned to the case
- Accompaniment to various services according to needs and availability
- Advocacy for services such as: legal aid, social aid, immigration
- Interpreter services according to the services offered by the bank of interpreters, if possible
