This toolkit provides Transitional Housing programs, and other service providers that support women, with tools to effectively provide services to women fleeing violence who have varying levels of mental wellness and/or substance use. In developing this Promising Practices toolkit we have drawn on the current policies, procedures and practices of BCSTH Members and non-BCSTH Members in BC; reviewed practices in Canada and internationally; and consulted with low barrier service providers and with women about what changes we might advocate for, and make.
