Sponsor the Outreach Centre.
How can I make a difference?
The Women’s Outreach is a non-profit agency and relies on its fundraising efforts, sponsors and major funders for financial support. The funds generated go towards supporting over 16 programs and services, offered by the Outreach Centre, to assist those who have chosen to pursue a safer, healthier and more secure life for themselves and their families; as well as Julietta’s Place, which provides second stage housing to women and their children escaping domestic violence and abusive situations.
The demand on our programs continues to increase. In 2012 The Outreach Centre (Women’s Outreach) responded to over 45,903 calls, and our Outreach Workers assisted over 4,928 individuals on issues concerning domestic violence, housing, legal, emotional support, and meeting basic needs. The Outreach Centre (Women’s Outreach) coordinates the Tools for School Program distributing backpacks to help children return to school with appropriate supplies, as well as the Adopt a Family program which assists less fortunate single parents who are unable to provide a Christmas for their children. We would be not be able to provide this support if it was not for the generosity and support of the community.
The Outreach Centre (Women’s Outreach) is planning on raising an estimated $260,000.00 this year through fundraising campaigns. The expenditures to our organization are an estimated 15% in administration and agency fees. The money raised will be going to help fund programs and services that support families in meeting their basic needs with our priorities being women and families affected by poverty and/or abuse.
