Mission and Goals
To provide a safe refuge, counselling, support and advocacy for women and their children who are fleeing violence; while also working towards a more equal society where the inherent value of all women is acknowledged and celebrated.
How Your Contribution Helps
Donations help to provide the "extras" to women and their children fleeing violence:
birthday presents; TTC tickets; grocery gift cards when a woman moves out of our shelter; holiday celebrations; movie passes; special trips for the kids
The following letter was addressed to one of our front line workers at the shelter.
The day you walked into my life and my son’s life was the day I started believing in myself. When I had no hope you made me have faith. When I felt like everything was impossible, you walked with me through my darkest moment.
I loved my son from birth, but when I heard you, or saw you talking to your kids on the phone you made me love my son even more. I thank you for that. Today I have a life because you believed in me like I was your own daughter. Most of all, I can give my son a life that I could never have when I was a child, because you helped and believed that I can. I thank for all of your support, especially for being with me during my darkest moments.
