Thanks to our community’s incredible generosity, we have updated all eight shelter bedrooms and most common areas. We are now working on the last few areas that need updating, keeping physical distancing guidelines in mind so that clients have a safe and healthy space during their stay with us.
Bathroom: Each of the five shared bathrooms is in need of an overhaul, including new paint, flooring, lighting, 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.
Kitchen: The kitchen would benefit from a refresh, complete with paint, new countertops, painted cabinets, and new cabinet hardware.
OUR Place Outdoor Space: Home to youth who have been trafficked, the OUR Place property abuts a parking lot and is need of a safe and private outdoor leisure area. Enhancements may include fencing and a deck for youth to socialize with peers who’ve experienced similar trauma.
