Raise money for DISCOVERY HOUSE


Discovery House is a social profit organization providing a continuum of care to women and their children fleeing domestic violence. We facilitate transitional housing, offering longer-term, safe places for women and children to call home while they begin rebuilding their lives. We provide mothers access to counselling, support and programs to ensure they never return to abusive partners. We work directly with children, to mitigate the effects of trauma and prevent the cycle from repeating. 


To end the traumatic cycle of domestic violence for women and children


Our communities are free of family violence

Safety: We are in the safety business. We provide the physical and emotional safe spaces for women and their children to feel secure, to recover, discover and thrive.


Compassion: We are privileged to engage with people at points of extreme vulnerability. We treat our clients and each other with kindness, empathy and care. We believe that compassion is a strength that builds strength.

Collaboration: There is strength in numbers. We are leading a movement of change which requires the collaborative efforts of many community partners. We seek the inputs and contributions of others, and share best practices with our community.


Urgency: Our work saves lives. We advocate for the women and children we serve, and courageously pursue societal change to break the generational cycle of domestic violence.
