Your gift will make a big impact for the families who depend on Ernestine’s services….
Every dollar counts when a woman flees violence and abuse, and most leave with only the clothes on their backs. At Ernestine’s women and children find a safe haven where they can begin, step by step, to rebuild their lives.
Many of Ernestine’s supporters are surprised to learn that, while the shelter receives funding from the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services and the United Way, the shelter must still raise over $500,000 every year to continue to deliver essential services and programs to our clients, particularly those that support youth and children.
Your financial contributions go directly to providing essential, life-saving programs and services for the women and children who reside at Ernestine’s, as well as over 400 women and children in our community outreach program, who have access to counselling supports and our on-site food bank.
Please support us!
If you have any questions, please contact Lily Ayelazuno, Donor Services Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
