COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected emergency women's shelters across Canada. These life-saving organizations provide safe shelter and support to women and children who are fleeing domestic violence. While providing their critical services with extra attention being paid to hygiene and social distancing, shelters are responding to this crisis by providing more counselling by phone and text to women experiencing abuse triggered by isolation, job losses and other stressors. Operational costs for shelters are up and the fundraising events they rely upon are being cancelled. Please help your local women's shelter by making a donation today. Every dollar will make a difference in the lives of the brave women and children they serve.
