The Story

Victory House is an inspired vision of a group of people in the Dufferin Caledon area. After assisting several women in their time of need, it became obvious that a safe home for healing was needed in the area. The vision is the creation of a transitional home, offering support and training for women and children in times of crisis. As the idea was shared with others, a group quickly came together to form a steering committee for The Victory House Association of Dufferin Caledon, as an established corporation, with charitable status. More than 50 volunteers have joined, working together to make The Victory House a reality.
