PO Box 3044
Mission, British Columbia   V2V 4J3
Home, Healing and Place began in March 2009. It is a three year pilot project designed to help facilitate support, healing, skills development, housing and social inclusion of street engaged women in Abbotsford and Mission.

Home, Healing and Place includes an actual store front location called ?The Warm Zone?. This program serves as a bridge to other local community services.

Penny?s Place is a women?s house attached to the Home, Healing and Place project. A small number of women share a house with in-house support. By removing the significant barrier of access to safe housing and food security, women can then turn their attention to healing and personal growth.
