What do women’s shelters really need – money or stuff?
That’s a question we often find ourselves answering, whether from friends, family members, or others we meet in the community. And the answer is: both. Women’s shelters really need money AND stuff. The money helps us keep the shelter doors open around the clock to provide program services free of charge. Last year alone, Women’s Community House (London, Ontario) provided services to 5,947 individuals through shelter, outreach, children’s group programs, family court support, transitional housing, helpline, walk in support and more.
