Help women and children who are experiencing abuse and violence during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We need you more than ever.
While home is the safest place right now, it’s NOT a safe place for many women and children in our community.
We have always been facing a gender-based violence pandemic. Now, we are also facing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic — where rates of violence and abuse are increasing due to additional stress at home from job losses, isolation and financial strain.
We need your help so that we can support the women and children in need through our Emergency Shelter, 24/7 Crisis Line, Telephone Councelling and more.
Please consider making a one-time donation to our COVID-19 Emergency Fund, or a monthly donation. Any amount helps provide shelter over the heads of women and children in need, food, counselling and legal advice and so much more. Your donation truly changes and SAVES lives.
