The mission of Women’s Place of South Niagara Inc. is to end abuse and violence by empowering women and their children through the provision of safe shelter, counselling, education and community partnerships.
Women's Place of South Niagara Inc. began as two sister organizations; one in Niagara Falls and the other in Welland. Both Shelters operated independently before joining forces in 1997.
Nova House, our Niagara Falls shelter, began with the group Niagara Women in Crisis, which purchased and opened Nova House in 1983.
Serenity Place, our Welland shelter, has its roots in Women’s Place Welland & District Inc. This group purchased land for and built the shelter now known as Serenity Place after operating another shelter in Welland for about 15 years, one year before prior to amalgamation in 1997. Renovations were recently completed to the administrative section and the residential quarters to better service clients at Serenity Place.
