Thank you Dekora, one of Canada’s leading home staging companies, for partnering with The Salvation Army and for your generous donation of furniture and accessories to furnish and ‘stage’ a unit in The Salvation Army Esther’s Place. Esther’s Place is a shelter residence for women and kids fleeing domestic abuse.
The Salvation Army is committed to the ongoing freedom of women from violence. The Salvation Army provides three service centres focused on a continuum of care model. Women are supported in addressing the impact of abuse in their lives, walking through their journey of healing, and developing the tools they need to live independently.
These service centres include Kate Booth House: a confidential transition house providing safety and support for women and children who are at risk of, or have experienced violence. Annually, Kate Booth House provides refuge and support for approximately 800 women and 125 children. Women can stay at Kate Booth House for 30 days.
Esther’s Place is a second stage housing program for women and children who require safe housing following their stay at Kate Booth House. Esther’s Place consists of four self-contained apartments. The maximum stay at Esther’s Place is typically 12 months.
With the support of organizations such as Dekora to make Esther’s Place a place of comfort, support and refuge … The Salvation Army is able to continue to work towards restoring dignity and hope to women and children.
