Nova Transition House
Nova House is a temporary refuge where residents can obtain assistance with immediate practical concerns such as health, legal issues, housing, financial needs, schooling, child care, and transportation.
Women of all ages, from all walks of life, cultures, educational and economic backgrounds live with violence in their intimate relationships. In Canada 1 in 3 women experience violence from a man who is close to them at some point in their lives. Sometimes the violence gets so bad that women must flee for their lives and for the safety of their children.
Transition houses all over British Columbia offer safe, supportive temporary shelter for women and their children escaping violence at home. They are a place of refuge, and give women the time and space to consider their options and make important life decisions. Nova House is that place of refuge in Richmond.
