About Haven Society

PQHH-logo-and-text-new-2016Parksville Qualicum Haven House is a program delivered by Haven Society in collaboration with the Society of Organized Services.

Opened in October 2013, the Parksville Qualicum Haven House is a direct response to many local community members and organizations who felt strongly that women and children needed access to a safe shelter in their home communities.

This Oceanside area safe house provides temporary shelter to support women and children who have experienced violence and are seeking safety while exploring their options in Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Nanoose, Errington, Coombs, Whiskey Creek, Qualicum Bay and Bowser.

More than providing shelter, emotional support, and advocacy, Parksville-Qualicum Haven House is a safe place to begin healing from abuse.
