About This Charity

Luke’s Place is a unique resource centre devoted to improving the safety and experience of women who have been subjected to abuse, and their children, as they proceed through the family law system. Every year we support hundreds of women by providing individual and group information sessions, pro bono legal services, safety planning and the development of manuals and resources both in print and online.

A core component of our work is our commitment to enhance legal service delivery throughout Ontario. We share our expertise through comprehensive training and tools for advocates. We also offer critical community based training and mentorship for shelter staff, lawyers and other social service professionals. Our Virtual Legal Clinic connects women in under-served regions of the province to lawyers for family law summary advice. Visit lukesplace.ca.
