A message from our Executive Director
In this new environment with COVID-19 that’s changing on a day to day basis, WIN house, from the onset, has been doing anything and everything to continue to support women and children fleeing domestic violence. We are doing this collaboratively with our sister shelters, the Alberta Council of Women Shelters, every level of Government; Municipal, Provincial, and Federal. Adhering to all the advice and every single opportunity to advance safety and wellbeing for the families we are serving as well as our staff.
We recognize that women are going to be additionally isolated, have additional lack of access to resources that otherwise might normally be available to them. Challenges in finding safe places and meeting their basic needs.
We too rely on donations throughout the year, be it in-kind, via third party events, as well as our own events; Casino’s, our annual golf tournament, our Gala. We rely on these types of funds for a quarter of our operating budget. We are asking that in lieu of those events that needed to be cancelled due to COVID-19 you support us in other ways with funds, direct donations to the WIN house COVID-19 Relief Fund to help meet the needs of the women and children we serve.
We promise to do everything we can and more with the resources and funds we receive regardless of the source.
Thank you for being there for us in every capacity, always, and in ALL WAYS.
From WIN house to your house, we wish you all well, physically and emotionally.
We will get through this together.
