Kate’s Place

 Kate’s Place offers supervised housing for up to 11 women in the process of completing addictions treatment required by the Regina Drug Treatment Court (RDTC).  Most of these women would otherwise be serving custodial sentences.

 The Salvation Army started the program as a two-year test project in 2012 after receiving funding from the federal government.  Once the program was in place, the number of women participating in the RDTC went up nearly 40 percent.  Since 2012, four women who were pregnant when they moved into Kate’s Place for treatment later gave birth to healthy, drug-free babies.

 The RDTC is a therapeutic court that addresses drug addiction as an underlying cause of criminal activity.  It is considered one of the most successful drug treatment courts in Canada.
