The Transition House provides safe, confidential shelter for children, youth and women who have experienced or are at risk of abuse. There is also a youth bed for at-risk female youth where home or family is not an available option.
The Transition House along with its crisis line is open 24 hours per day 7 days per week and accepts new residents at any time. We provide services based on a harm reduction model and are located at a confidential location in Penticton with enhanced security features.
We provide a range of services including:
- Onsite crisis counselling
- Parental, child and family support
- Referral and advocacy to other community services.
- Focus on safety, confidentiality and individual support.
Many clients are unsure what to expect when they arrive at the Transition House, thinking it is set up in a hostel style of format. It is not. As a client of the Transition House, you are provided with an individual room with a bed, nightstand, closet and full private bathroom. We recognize that privacy is an important part of the journey beyond trauma. There is a grand room, community space and large, well-equipped kitchen.
