The Summer Soiree supports Victoria Women's Transition House, a registered non-profit charity that for more than 42 years has been providing emergency shelter, counselling, supports and services to women of all ages, with and without children, fleeing domestic abuse. The heart of the organization is the 18-bed Shelter, a welcoming, secure, home located in a friendly residential neighbourhood in a confidential location. Women and their children can stay in the Shelter for up to 30-days and can access crisis counselling and assistance to secure legal, financial and housing support. In addition, Transition House operates a 24-Crisis and Information Line and a number of counselling and support programs and services for women, as well as specialized programs for older women and for children who witness abuse.
