Mission Statement

Yukon Women’s Transition Home Society provides safe, confidential and nonjudgmental support, advocacy and shelter to women, and their children, who are in crisis and/or experiencing and responding to violence or abuse.

We believe there is no excuse for violence against women or children.
 About us:  YWTHS is a registered not-for-profit with charitable status.  We operate Kaushee’s Place, a 15 bed emergency shelter for women (and their children) who have experienced violence. In addition, Kaushee’s Place contains 5 apartment units for longer-term second-stage housing.

We also operate Betty’s Haven, a 10-unit second stage housing complex.



Through the generous support of many private donors, organizations, employee groups, foundations, and government funding we are able to help women and children.

Kaushee’s Story

Kaushee Harris had a vision of a safe home for women, which has since developed into the Yukon Women’s Transition Home. We named Kaushee's Place after her.
