Welcome Centre Shelter for Women with Elizabeth Sands and 8 others.

Wednesday night, these eleven people came together in support of the Welcome Centre. They dedicated countless hours of their time to make the show happen with only a little more than a month to plan. We are excited to announce that We've Got Rhythm for the Welcome Centre raised $2,000! At a time when we are beyond our capacity--donations like this make a world of difference and we can't thank you enough!

This past weekend, we had to add overflow mats to our living room space and a small on-site community meeting room, allowing an increase from 12 to 18 beds for single women- full the first night it started.
This is one of the many reasons that we hope to move to our forever home. We need a new building, where families and single women can both be served on-site, and we are working towards having a building purchased this Fall and start renovations as soon as we can after that.
In the mean-time, women lounge on couches, mats on the living room floor, flow out into the yard, and seem grateful to have a women-specific space to lay their head at night. The increased numbers tax the single-staffing at the shelter, increase food costs, utilities, and affect an already delicate budget, but creating this space for women to get assistance with housing isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity.

Jayce Beaudin-CarverI think it's also important to add that we also struggle finding space for families and are often at capacity off site as well.

This week, we received $570 from the 3rd Annual Grrrl Fest. Women-centric events like this not only benefit us financially but also directly support our agency values to empower women to recognize their self-worth and inherent power. Thanks to Christin Ceshan for helping create more awareness about agencies like ours so that we can continue recognizing and supporting the strengths and abilities of each client, and to encourage each client to have confidence in her ability to take charge of her own life. ...
