We will provide further updates as they are available!

Managing the Pandemic at Ann Elmore House

Ann Elmore House is a short-term shelter for women (and their dependent children) who are at risk of violence or abuse. As a communal living facility, we have put in place special rules and protocols to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 to clients and staff. 

What you can expect at Ann Elmore House: 

  • Health screening before intake

  • If you have any flu-type symptoms, you are required to quarantine and get a COVID-19 test

  • Daily health screening including temperature readings 

  • Hand sanitation every time you enter the building

  • Physical distancing of 2 meters from other people

  • Non-surgical face masks are required in all shared areas of the house

  • You will be asked to "keep your bubble small", meaning that socializing is only with a small group of close family or friends

  • Overnight stays away will not be allowed

WHO WE ARE

Campbell River and North Island Transition Society

Campbell River and North Island Transition Society (CRNITS) is a non-profit Registered Society and Charitable Organization. The Society was formed in 1985 for the purpose of providing services to women and children struggling with issues of abuse and violence.​  CRNITS is the umbrella organization for the following:

Campbell River Women's Centre

In 1985 the Campbell River Women’s Centre gave birth to the Campbell River and North Island Transition Society (CRNITS). April 1, 2019 CRNITS took over the administration of the Women’s Centre programs including the drop-in centre, crisis/support counselling, and poverty reduction.

Ann Elmore Transition House
In 1987 Ann Elmore Transition House opened and continues to provide safe shelter, support, and programs to women and children fleeing abuse.

Rose Harbour

 Rose Harbour opened in 2013 and offers a program which includes subsidized housing.  Women and their children are supported in their efforts to build a healthy life free of violence and abuse.

​Safe Homes

​The North Island encompasses a large area with many rural communities in remote areas and on outlying islands.  The Society has implemented safe guards for women and children in these areas which includes safe homes and outreach programs.    

 

Abuse is an attempt to control the behaviour of another person. It is a misuse of power which uses the bonds of intimacy, trust, and dependency to make the victim vulnerable.

Transition House staff are available 24-hours a day to support and assist you.  Please follow the link below to see the other services offered in our community.

The Campbell River and North Island Transition Society depends heavily on donations.  Many programs and services are possible because of our generous donors.
