Centred around women’s goals, FIR helps women and newborns who are recovering from substance use.

At FIR Square women are supported – sometimes for many months – with clinical care, counselling, and skills training to help them stabilize and recover from substance dependence with their babies. Keeping mothers and newborns together is a priority.

In July 2019, FIR Square is moving into a new, enhanced, renovated space at BC Women’s. Their harm reduction model of care is already a world-leader, so we’re striving to provide an environment to match. It will feel less clinical, providing a space where women can really feel supported in their healing and wellness. Donate to equitable healthcare that meets women where they’re at.
