shinah community house

a place to live, learn and grow in wellness…

The Shinah Community House is designed for those women needing to focus on their mental wellness with some living assistance. These individuals are well enough to participate and be supported by the Community Art & Living Centre programs, but are incapable of finding success without a more structured support system. Each house will have a Social Worker overseeing the running of the home and helping guests transition back into their community.


Women will live cooperatively in the community houses with 6 to 8 other women. They will work together running the house and preparing meals. There will be a nutritional meal plan that will be followed by all those living in the house. Individual counseling, group support, along with other programs and services will be available at the community wellness centre.

Often women will come to stay at a community house from a Shinah Ranch, but for some this will be their first stay at a Shinah Community House. Those not in need of the Ranch program but seek assisted living will come directly to a Shinah Community House from their home.
