The Brandon Women’s Home is a safe place for women with life-controlling addictions to find the freedom they’ve been searching for. Located on a small, picturesque acreage fifteen minutes Northwest of Brandon, MB, our addiction treatment centre is an ideal setting to take the steps necessary for restoration and wholeness.
Our passion is to create a loving family atmosphere for everyone who spends time at the Brandon Women’s Home and to allow the love of Christ to forever change their lives. We are thankful for the transformation that happens here and you will be too.
The main house has a capacity for 16 clients and 5 graduates with classrooms and a large, open-concept living room and dining room. This centre also has a sprawling backyard, with a large deck with lots of space to eat and visit and a big fire pit for summer bonfires and a trampoline.

What Makes The Brandon Centre Different?!
Our staff are here to walk alongside women as they dare to break free from old patterns of thinking and relating and are willing to delve into tough topics such as, complex trauma, anger, family relationships and addiction.
In Personal Studies for New Life in Christ (PSNL), we offer personal learning plans for each student that cover the areas of salvation, self-image, spiritual growth, family, work, responsibility and a chance to reconnect with Christ.
Women within the Brandon Centre also take part in our Group Studies for New Life in Christ (GSNL) that touches on topics like anger and personal rights, personal relationships with others, and how to deal with personal offence.

We also have opportunities for women to learn life skills such as cooking, cleaning and budgeting.
