There are many services and supports throughout the province to help people who are experiencing violence. Don’t worry about which one is the right one. The most important thing for you is to make contact with someone and they will help you find the services that are most appropriate for you.
Below is a list of links to services, supports and resources available in Saskatchewan.
Remember: If you are in immediate danger, call 911.
Victim Service Programs
Victims Services programs offer a range of programs and services to respond to the needs of victims of crime. These programs work closely with police to assist victims in the immediate aftermath of a crime or tragedy and throughout the criminal justice process. Services offered to meet the needs of victims include crisis intervention, information, support, and referrals to other specialized programs and services. Go to www.justice.gov.sk.ca/Victim-Services-in-Police-Agencies to find Victims Services in your area.
Emergency Shelters and Transition Houses
Emergency shelters and transition houses provide temporary housing, food and support for women and their children leaving violence. When you are at the shelter, the staff can assist you as you plan for your future by offering safety, a supportive ear, information, and referrals to counselling and services such as financial services, legal support and housing. Typically, emergency shelters and transition houses can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can also call shelters and transition houses for assistance over the phone. You do not have to contact or go to the shelter that is closest to you. If you feel safer or more comfortable accessing services in another area, you can do so. Go to for abusehelplines.org/resources/find-a-shelter/ contact information.
