Contributor · Lou's Place



Lou’s Place is a unique, community-based refuge for women in crisis, feeling isolated or needing support. Most of the women who visit Lou’s Place have experienced multiple traumas in their lives and the majority are facing issues of homelessness, domestic violence, mental health or addiction. Their mission is to provide a safe place where women’s basic needs are met, a community in which to heal and the support to empower women to rebuild their lives.


They are a low barrier centre which means you can still be struggling with addiction and mental health issues and as long as you are safe to come into the house, you are welcomed at Lou’s. They meet clients where they are and work from there.


They work with all women for as long as they need help. There is no cut off date to your time at Lou’s. They work with women to address their underlying trauma so they can heal and rebuild their lives.
