About Dixon Transition Society

Serving the community since 1973, Dixon Transition Society helps to reduce the impact of domestic violence by providing a safe haven for women and children at Dixon House, a ten-bed safe house that provides a safe and supportive environment. Transitional housing programs, counselling and outreach services form a continuum of care to help women and children live a life free from violence. FUNDING FOR CHILD SUPPORT PROGRAMS WILL BE ELIMINATED ENTIRELY BY 2020, which makes it more important to raise money for Dixon Transition Society to ensure that they are able to meet the needs of the children as well.
