Building Towards a Brighter Future

The Shelter Me Campaign is an ongoing project for
local families who are in urgent need of
Second Stage Housing.

While our shelter tries to meet the demands for service, we are over capacity and cannot provide the much needed crisis services that many women need. To address the need for specialized, safe and affordable housing for women experiencing abuse, we offer temporary housing to women and children leaving the Barrie Shelter but still have access to our Outreach Services. 

 The Shelter Me Campaign raises much-needed funds to secure housing for families leaving the shelter. Funds will go to building and property maintenance, security, furniture and housewares and the day to day costs of operating a house.  Together, we’ll create more than shelter; we will nurture progress and belonging, touching lives for generations to come. Join us in shaping a brighter future.

I’d like to donate to the campaign!
