Your donation towards adopting-a-room at our shelter will help a woman, her children and in some cases, her pet, flee from domestic abuse. Your gift will assure that they receive the full assistance of our professionally trained shelter staff and programs including:
- a newly renovated, safer, nurturing space
- meals, bedding, welcome kit, and other essential items
- one-on-one safety and life planning sessions
- skill building groups
In recognition of your support towards the Adopt-a-Room Annual Donation Campaign, YOU receive:
- The Women’s Centre website and Facebook page recognition
- recognition in The Women’s Centre public communications
- a plaque at the entrance to your adopted room with your name
- knowledge that you are helping women and their children in your home community
Rooms Available for Adoption:
Front Reception: $1,000
This the room women and children enter when first coming to the shelter. We would like to make it as warm and welcoming as possible, providing a safe environment for those in a difficult time.
Pet Welcoming Room: $1,500
If a woman chooses to bring a pet with her to the shelter, this will be a place for animals to stay while their owners get settled. A sudden change can be scary for pets, too, and we would like to make this space a tranquil environment for furry friends.
Counseling Rooms: $2,000
Each woman has access to vital counselling services while staying at the shelter. These rooms should feel comfortable and safe, a place to go to seek guidance and comfort.
Living Room: $3,000
The living room is a major common space for all of our residents. It is a gathering place where women can be social and feel at home.
Community Room: $5,000
The Community Room will be multi-purpose – a place to relax, work, play, and collaborate.
The kitchen is used by everyone in the shelter. It is in much need of an upgrade, as it is heavily used on a daily basis. We offer cooking classes on a weekly basis to our residents, and often have women cooking together.
