Helping women, men and their families

500 Hopes For 500 HOMES


The Welcome Centre Shelter opens its doors to nearly 500 women and kids every year.
Where did you sleep last night? With 500 people giving $20 a month, 500 women and children this year will have immediate access to a safe and comfortable shelter bed.
For only 66 cents per day,
your contribution makes sure that safe bed comes with 24 hour help and hope.


As the only shelter for women and families experiencing homelessness, that hope can’t wait--help us keep the shelter door open.
