Creating Better Futures
Armagh provides women and their children with the best possible opportunity to overcome the devasting effects of abuse. For over 25 years, Armagh has been giving help and hope to women fleeing abuse. We are committed to creating an environment that supports women and children through their transition, giving them the support and knowledge necessary to redefine a future. Unlike a first stage or crisis shelter, which responds to short-term emergencies, Armagh is a non-profit, supportive transitional housing program, providing housing and services to women with or without children who have been victims of family violence. Armagh provides supportive transitional housing with 9 residential units.
