Named after a co-founder of Bradley Angle, The Bonnie Tinker House is a safe haven for adults and children fleeing domestic violence, providing residents a safe place to call home for up to eight weeks.
During this time, our dedicated team of advocates work with survivors to identify what they need to rebuild their lives, and connect them to the resources available.
Services provided at The Bonnie Tinker House include:
- Comprehensive safety planning
- Clothing, food, and toiletries
- Help with housing, financial, and legal issues
- Job assistance
- Financial education
- Transportation assistance
- Health and wellness assistance (including drug, alcohol and mental health counselling)
- Workshops and support groups (including activities for children and youth)
