Violence Against Women, Services Elgin County

On May 21st 2015, Dr. Helena Jaczek Minister of Community and Social Services and Deb Matthews Deputy Premier announced their governments’ investment in a new home for our community’s Emergency Shelter and Community Space.  A total of $1,930,000!!The announcement was made to a packed Princess Ave Playhouse, with standing room only, and full of people who had given to and believed in what was possible together.  A roar went up when the announcement was made.  Excitement. Joy. Gratitude. Knowledge of why it matters.  To women. To children. To our community.Together we will build it and celebrate all that is possible within it.  Thank you so much! 

$1,100,000 was raised as a result of our community’s generosity and compassion.  Thank you!!!
