Brigid’s Place

Brigid’s Place is an 11-unit facility that offers low-barrier housing for at risk, chronically homeless women; it focuses on harm reduction and health promotion for its residents.

Brigid’s Place is the first low-barrier housing program in Ottawa designed specifically for women who have experienced long-term homelessness, and who are living with concurrent mental health challenges and addictions. Many of the women who reside at Brigid’s Place have also been involved in the sex trade or the criminal justice system, and/or have experienced significant trauma.
