Together we can
create a lasting impact.

Gillian’s Place is proud to support and empower women, non-binary individuals, and children to break the cycle of gender-based violence. With the help of valued corporations, foundations, businesses and community organizations, we have been able to grow Gillian’s Place, helping survivors take necessary first steps toward a safe and happy life.

It is through the generosity and support of our community that Gillian’s Place has been able to evolve into the organization it is today; a safe haven of support and resources for those experiencing gender-based violence and abuse.
