All three WIN House shelters continue to be operational during the COVID 19 pandemic. We are doing all we can to ensure the health and safety of our clients, their children and our staff by adhering to government directives and health measures provided by Alberta Health Services.
Deemed an essential service by the government, WIN House will continue to accept women and children fleeing domestic violence as best as we can. This includes continuing to provide our clients and their kids the necessities they need once they arrive in shelter and throughout their stay; good food to help sustain them, a warm bed to rest in, a toy to play with, and a plethora of programs and services designed to help them figure out their next steps.
We are only able to provide any of this because of you. Our donors, supporters, and the champions of our common purpose to help Women In Need. And now, with the threat of the COVID 19 pandemic, we are working to prepare for the day when we start running out of the very items that make WIN House the organization it is.
Below are a few examples of what the WIN House COVID 19 Relief Fund and your cash donation will help provide over the next weeks and months. It is not an exhaustive list as we are learning daily of new needs that arise but for now, we hope it provides you with some context as to what we need today and what we are preparing to need tomorrow…
- Medical Supplies
- Transportation Costs
- WIN House Staffing
- Operational Costs
- Additional COVID-19 Related Costs
We know that with the continued support of our amazing donors and supporters, the Edmonton community, our volunteers and enduring staff, we CAN continue to be there when we are needed to provide safe shelter and hope to so many women and children who need our help. Collectively, we are all champions of the common purpose of helping Women In Need fleeing domestic abuse. We have never and can never do it alone. Together we will get through this…virus or no virus.
From our (WIN) house to your house, thank you.
