Durrant Transition House

We are excited to announce that effective May 1st 2014, Durrant Transition House will embrace a new mandate committed to supporting women with complex needs, and their children, who are fleeing and/or seeking support around their experiences of violence and abuse, struggles with substance use and mental and spiritual wellness.

Women must be able to live communally.
