Shimai Transition House

A first-stage transition house for women and their children escaping abuse which is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Staff provides emotional support, referrals and resource information, advocacy, court accompaniment, parenting support and on-site non-medical detoxification. An alcohol and drug therapist is available twice weekly for appointments.

A 16-step support group (a feminist alternative to AA & NA) is available on site. Length of stay ranges from 30-90 days. Women are not required to be abstinent, but must not use alcohol and/or drugs on site. Women on methadone are welcome and staff will dispense carries.
