Gender Based Violence
SAFE TO SURF?
If you have accessed this information because you are in an abusive relationship, please consider your safety. Abusers often monitor your online activity just like they monitor your other activity.
You should be aware that abusers can easily monitor computer use. Even if you delete your history, 'spyware' is available to track every site you visit and everything you type. If you think your computer activity might be monitored, it may be safest to use a computer at a library or a friend’s place to search for information, or send emails related to your escape plan.
Isabel Johnson Shelter
Isabel Johnson Shelter is a safe place to stay while you work through future plans and a place to turn to by phone if you need someone to talk to about the abuse you’ve experienced. Our services are confidential and free of charge. To set up your stay, or for support and guidance by phone, call 306-525-2141 and ask to speak to a shelter worker.
If you are a woman who needs to flee a violent or abusive situation, then you are eligible to stay, with or without children, without charge. When you call us, the staff member you talk to will ask some questions about your situation and will let you know whether there is space available or not. If Isabel Johnson Shelter is currently full, they will suggest other options for you.
What to expect in shelter:
A private facility
Private bedrooms for single women or families
Shared kitchen and living rooms
24-hour staff available to assist and support you
Optional group support activities
An atmosphere of respect
