When women and their children come to Gillian’s Place, we are able to provide all families with their own bedroom. Personal items are given to women and children on arrival. Gillian’s Place is fully accessible, including an elevator and accessible washrooms.
On our main level, meals are prepared in the main kitchen and shared in the large dining room. Moms prepare breakfast, school lunches and lunch for their children. Dinner is prepared by our food service person during the week for the women and their children. The women have the opportunity to watch dinner preparation and find out about nutritional value and recipes. Gillian’s Place accommodates special dietary needs for our families.
There are many common rooms with space to enjoy privacy.
The lounge room is a space to share with family or a place for a mom to feed her baby during the night.
We have special rooms for private counselling and for women to review their options.
We are excited to have many places for children to play including the original gym and a large outdoor playground.
Secluded garden patio for the women
