We define “family” and “community” with great care around diversity. We work collaboratively with others in our communities committed to:  

  1. addressing replications of violence within our social responses to violence, and
  2. developing helpful practices together with individuals, families and communities.

About Us

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.

Our Services:

    • 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.
