Providing safe shelter and other services

Please make note that as of May 15 we have been managing the Sexual Abuse Centre of Thunder Bay. We ask for your patience as we are working on the current waitlist for sexual abuse counselling. Please reach out to our crisis lines for immediate crisis service or to get added to the waitlist.


About Faye Peterson House

The Faye Peterson House provides a safe and supportive temporary shelter environment, crisis services, counselling, outreach, transitional support, advocacy, early childhood education, and support groups to survivors/women, youth and their children who are experiencing abuse or are at risk of abuse.

Freedom from abuse is every person’s basic right. Under Section 266 of the Criminal Code of Canada, it is against the law for anyone to abuse their spouse, common-law partner, or girlfriend/boyfriend.

During this COVID 19 pandemic, Faye continues to offer support to survivors/women and their children needing our services.

“Everybody at Faye is amazing, I got involved with them a week after it happened. Someone suggested I call and ever since then they’ve been amazing and have been supporting me for about four years now.”

“I am really glad for Faye Peterson. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t pushed the issue to talk to someone from there.”

“It took me many years to gain back confidence and self esteem that had just been destroyed from staying in my marriage. I finally gained it back with Faye Peterson after being with them for many years.”
