This housing will be in the downtown of Campbell River and will provide temporary and permanent housing for women and families who may have been through our other residential programs. This housing will complete our continuum of housing for women, starting with crisis intervention and short term shelter stay, transitional housing in Rose Harbour change program, followed by the new facility and our ongoing partnership with the Campbell River and District Association for Community Living at Palmer Place.
