The name TEARMANN comes from a Gaelic word meaning ‘refuge’. While members of the Tearmann Society engage in various activities in support of the victims of family violence, the most important role of Tearmann House is to be a safe place for abused women and their children.
- shelter to women in physically, emotionally, and/or sexually abusive relationships
- food, shelter, and basic personal needs for women and their children
- a child care program which recognizes the children are in a crisis too and provides services to meet their needs
- skilled and supportive staff to provide information, referrals, counselling, and support groups
- shelter 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to a 6 week maximum.
