Who We Are

Harmony House is the only second-stage women's shelter in Ottawa.

For 25 years, we have provided safe, affordable transitional housing for women and children who are survivors of domestic violence.

We rely on donations of money, items, and services to provide for the many needs of our residents.

Many of our programs and services are available to former residents.
