Lurana Shelter is a first-stage emergency shelter for women and children fleeing domestic violence. It provides safe shelter in a confidential location, immediate crisis intervention, food, clothing, transportation and child support.

At Lurana Shelter, our main objective is to facilitate empowerment of the women and children we serve. We seek to empower by encouraging information based decision-making; by increasing awareness of the cycle of violence and the effects of abuse; by working to reduce the problematic symptoms experienced by child witnesses; by strengthening the relationship between the child and the non-abusive parent; by encouraging positive behaviour patterns and attitudes in the children; and by helping mothers attain the tools that will enable her to build a safe, nurturing environment for her children.
