Welcome Centre Shelter for Women shared Women's March Canada's event.

We will be marching in solidarity with women and human rights groups from across the world this Saturday! As a shelter that highlights the importance of gender specific services, this is a cause near and dear to us. Like those attending the march, we are committed to intersectional feminism!

Welcome Centre Shelter for Women is feeling grateful.

Today we had a young boy knock at the door to donate his Christmas money. He brought in $51! Seeing this awareness about giving back to the community at such a young age certainly warms our hearts!

Today we got a visit from Ted from Shoppers Drug Mart:)
Year after year, Ted chooses us as the recipient for the Tree of Life campaign run at the local Shoppers Drug Mart stores that he owns. More than $5,000 was raised this year! This is a large amount for us and really has had a big impact over the years on the services we are able to provide to women and families experiencing homelessness. Thanks so much!

Just a reminder to the community as the temps get even colder, we still have space here at the Centre for Women and families experiencing homelessness! ... See moreSee less

With the weather being frigid cold, you may be wondering: how are we are doing here at the Centre? We are currently operating at our regular capacity and are regrouping from the holidays. What we are asking is that the community hold off for the next few weeks on certain donations. We currently are full to the brim with donations and out of space.

We need to ensure a space is reserved for crash mats. While during these cold temps, women and families often hold off on accessing essential services like ours, we still want to be prepared and ready!

The only donations that we can use at this time would be bus tickets and gift cards for women and families.

Cheyanne Dawn SpenceThis place saved our lives, The staff here are phenomenal, they went above and beyond the call of duty. They were helpful, kind, considerate, polite and very friendly. They gave us the resources we needed to feel safe and comfortable, and gave us access to a bunch we didn't know existed. In my experience, if you are Trans and in desperate need, this is the place you need to go.

Today was a great day for us! Today we picked up a $10,000 cheque from Green Shield Canada (GSC). They are celebrating 60 years of supporting our local community and have once again stepped up to the plate to help local families and individuals. Thank you so much for this generosity! ...
