When you have made the decision to leave your home to escape violence, it can often be an overwhelming experience. Here is a list of items to consider taking with you. 

 

Kaushee's Story

Kaushee’s Place is named after the late Kaushee Harris, a Tlingit First Nation woman from Atlin, BC. She was a gentle and loving fierce advocate for women. A mother of seven, a teacher and leader, Kaushee started a safe home for women, which is now Women’s Transition Home.

Kaushee never forgot others who were confronted with challenges and barriers, and until her death, Kaushee worked diligently for the betterment of Yukon society.
