Thanks to our community’s generosity, all eight shelter bedrooms and several common areas have been updated with new decor and furnishings. We are continuing our planned upgrades, but with COVID-19 cases rising, we are also working to repurpose shelter spaces to ensure safety around physical distancing.
Hallway: $1,500 The second-storey hallway flooring is in disrepair after more than forty years of heavy use. We will update the flooring to match the new flooring that was installed in all eight shelter bedrooms.
Computer/Counselling Room: $3,000 We will create a computer lounge where women will be able to connect digitally with essential community services and agencies, many of whom have introduced virtual offerings. Located near the bedrooms, this will allow women evening access while their children are nearby sleeping. This room will double as a counselling office during peak times.
Bathroom: $5,000 Each of the five shared bathrooms is in need of an overhaul, including new flooring, lighting, vanity with countertops, storage, and mirrors. These washrooms are used by more than 160 women and children every year, so given the heavy use, they take more wear and tear than a usual household.
