Providing Emergency Shelter and services to abused women and
their children in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties since 1983.
Three Oaks Foundation provides an Emergency Shelter with 16 beds for stay up to 6 weeks for women and their children who have experienced domestic violence. The Emergency Shelter, which is located in Belleville, ON is staffed 24/7, 365 days a year offering crisis support services.
Women receive information on rights, options, and available services during their stay. Residents receive assistance with safety planning and referrals to agencies and supports in the community. All services are free and confidential.
To help women feel more comfortable and let them know what to expect, we have provided a video of the rooms they may find at the shelter.
