Your donation does so much to help

Each year the shelter is required to raise funds for 1/3 of our available beds.  Many women and children will seek a safe haven at The Women’s Centre shelter.  Shelters save the lives of women and children and gives them a chance at a new start – your donation to The Women’s Centre Grey Bruce in the heart of Owen Sound helps to keep women and their children safer.  Our Charitable Registration Number is: 119302594RR0001
