My Safety Plan

Safety plans are a personalized and practical plan for you or your children to stay safe when exposed to an abusive relationship, if you are planning to leave, and to protect your emotional and physical wellbeing after exiting a relationship. These plans should be customized to you and your circumstances to ensure you’re supported in the ways YOU need. You can use this plan as a tool when faced with difficult, scary, or potentially dangerous situations with your partner, because your safety is paramount.

When you’re ready to take the first step towards finding support, a safety plan is a great place to start. Please click the Quick Contact bottom at the bottom of the page and our team can help make your personalized safety plan. They are real people here for you 24/7 by phone, chat, or email.

If you are in immediate physical danger, please call 911 or your local emergency number.

SPCA PetSafekeeping Program

Hope Resource Centre is a referral partner to the SPCA Pet Safekeeping Program that provides short-term housing at no charge for animals belonging to individuals in crisis due to family violence or abuse.

Through a confidential placement process, safety for the pet is secured, reducing trauma that pets who have witnessed (or experienced) violence and abuse experience.

Studies indicate 59% of family violence survivors admit to a delay in leaving the relationship out of concern for their pets; risking their personal safety to remain with their pet. This program removes a critical barrier to safety for both the individual and their pet.
