Fatima House Women’s Shelter

The Dept has helped local people get involved in integrating this new shelter through the development of a Community Liaison Committee, a public information session, regular community bulletins, and other activities.


Fred Victor, a charitable organization dedicated to serving people experiencing homelessness, moved one of its women’s shelters into a new facility on College St West. The Dept led a community engagement plan to provide opportunities for people in the community get involved with integrating the new shelter service and residents into the community. Engagement activities included a public information session, regular community bulletins, ongoing communication and website updates, and the establishment of a Community Liaison Committee (CLC) comprised of local groups and individuals who act as go-between, relaying information, concerns and offers of support to the shelter operators, such as welcome baskets and notes from neighbours and local schools.
