Yellow Brick House

YBH Final Logo_tag_Large 

Yellow Brick House is a non-profit charitable organization that is mandated to provide services in York Region to women and children who have experienced violence and abuse.

Yellow Brick House provides four core services: emergency shelter, transitional housing, outreach services and public education. The two emergency shelters offer a safe place for women and children fleeing from their abusive relationships. In Reta’s Place, this transitional housing facility provides housing units to women and children transitioning from the emergency shelter to living independently. Outreach services offer an array of programs to women and their children in various stages of their abusive relationship from counselling to legal services. The Violence Prevention and Public Education Program reaches out to schools to raise awareness of the prevalence and devastating effects of domestic violence, by hosting workshops and seminars on dating violence and healthy relationships.

Why support Yellow Brick House?

With the money received, Yellow Brick House can continue to run their programs to help empower women and their children in their journey to rebuilding their lives.
