Update on Funding Cuts Announcement

We are now moving beyond the news of $212,000 loss in funding, and going forward with the knowledge that we are faced with making some difficult decisions as we navigate this time of transition. In spite of this challenge, we are dedicated to providing quality services for women experiencing homelessness, or moving beyond homelessness in Ottawa. We will continue to work with our community partners, and ensure that the women who come to us receive the assistance they need to rebuild their lives.

We also wish to thank those who have responded to our call for help. Your support means the world to us, and we appreciate every message of encouragement and every donation. Watch for information about our Annual Fund Drive as we strive to raise $100,000 to fill the gap left by the cuts and to help us through this difficult transition.
