In-House

In-House Service

If you are ready to join us, there is nothing you need to bring except yourself and children if you believe their safety may be in jeopardy. We will provide you with all the basic living essentials, including shelter, food, clothing, support, and referrals. Your length of stay is all dependent on your needs.

The staff at the Shelwin House will recognize your individual strengths and help you to rebuild yourself, your self-confidence, self-esteem, as well as your acceptance of self and others. We can educate you about the cycle of violence and help support your recovery.

Outreach

Connect with Survivors

At Shelwin House, we believe one of the best ways to end the cycle of spousal and relationship abuse is to share your experience with others. Here, you can bring out your strengths as part of our community and network. We offer several outreach services, all of which are absolutely free to survivors of interpersonal violence.

Crossroads: Support Meetings Every Thursday

Our Crossroads support group holds two sessions every Thursday. This group is designed for women who are currently experiencing — or have experienced — interpersonal violence.

Afternoon Sessions take place every Thursday at 1:15 PM through 2:30 PM (CT) at the SIGN (Society for the Involvement of Good Neighbors) building, 345 Broadway Street West, Yorkton. Free child care and transportation services are available.

Evening sessions take place at Shelwin House, from 6:30 PM through 8:30 PM (CT). Since these sessions are for adults only, no childcare is available. Please call for address and directions: 306-783-7233 or toll-free 1-888-783-3111.
