Forever Legacy Foundation

We are pleased to announce that The Forever Legacy Foundation has provided our agency with a $1,000 operations grant.  This funding will help support the services we provide to women and children as they pursue their hopes for a safer life.

The Forever Legacy Foundation was chartered in 2001 to offer a low cost alternative for donors to establish perpetual for Canadian charities.

Thank you!

Retired Women Teachers of Ontario – St. Thomas & Elgin Branch

For the past 10 years, this wonderful group of women has supported women and children by supplying fully-stocked backpacks.  On October 5th, they donated another 28 backpacks to ensure that children staying in the shelter have what they need to continue in their studies and not fall behind in school.

Incredibly generous, thoughtful and practical.

The Aylmer Red Hat Society recently gathered wonderful gifts for women, boys and girls staying at the shelter so they know their community cares for them.
