Details

We were founded in 1987 by members of our community who were concerned that women in abusive relationships had nowhere to go. From 1989 – 1992, we operated a safe home network, in which local families volunteered to take women and children into their own homes.

In 1992, we were able to purchase a large home. Lilli House was opened that year, with 11 beds in 6 bedrooms. We also received funding that year to begin our Stop the Violence and Children Who Witness Abuse Counselling Programs. We began to offer Detox services in 1999 and Supportive Recovery services in 2000.

Today, Lilli House has 14 beds in 9 bedrooms. An average of 300 women and children stay in Lilli House every year. We receive an average of 1500 crisis calls per year. Many more women and children access our counseling services.

From the very beginning, we have had tremendous community support. Our primary funding comes from BC Housing and The Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General. We also receive funds from the Ministry of Social Development, Vancouver Island Health Authority, Comox Valley Community Foundation, The United Way of Central and Northern Vancouver Island, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, B.C. Charitable Gaming, Soroptimists International – Courtenay and generous donations from community members, businesses and organizations.
