Here's the scoop: we have an old wood picnic table that has long since fallen apart. Looking for assistance to see if anyone with a truck could potentially load it up and bring to dump for us? Would love to have a replacement for the women- something that can take year round weather outside, heavy use and abuse! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Think it's YOU?

Welcome Centre Shelter for WomenHi all- thanks to those who have reached out and called, emailed, messaged, etc! Some of the common questions (and answers) are: 1) Do you accept those with no experience, but early on in schooling? Likely no; the position does require some advanced understanding and a foundation skill-set already in areas like conflict resolution, residential work, trauma-informed, harm-reduction etc. We do recommend you think about volunteering here first though, to see if it is for you! 2) What are some of the most important skills needed? Personality matters- strong personalities, those who take initiative, and strong communication and de-escalation skills are definitely an asset.
If you are able, would you consider donating a gift basket, item, gift card, etc for our upcoming Quarter Auction?
