“The seed you plant may look small but it has deep roots and will grow into a mighty tree. Your donations help women rise up in strength.”
Inside this issue:
It’s only because of you that we can be prepared, no matter what the weather, to welcome and care for each woman and child fleeing an abusive home.
Your gift of $40 will provide a Welcome Kit filled with basic necessities to an abused woman arriving at our door this winter.
A gift of $60 will provide Welcome Kits for a mother and her child and $75 will provide a Family Welcome Kit for a mother arriving with her children.
The holidays came with a little “help” for two deserving families this season.
On November 24th the Toronto Raptors hosted a special event in support of Holiday Helpers − a volunteer run registered charity whose mission is to provide a one-time personalized Christmas package to low income families with young children who are trying to improve their circumstances.
Interval House nominated two deserving families to attend the event – families who we knew were working hard to make things better, and deserved a little extra special gift.
Thank you for your response to our Holiday mailing and for sending back the ornaments for our tree! The children at Interval House enjoyed colouring the ornaments and decorating our tree for the holidays. Your messages of cheer were gratefully received and filled the House with hope for a bright 2014!
When a woman graduates our Building Economic Self Sufficiency (BESS) program, she is equipped with the tools she needs to rebuild, reinvent and transform her life and often, the lives of her children. Just ask Gessell.
Gessell – a mother, a survivor of partner abuse and a proud graduate of BESS – had a dream to launch her own cleaning business. After getting her business license, she knew she needed some help to proceed. She heard about BESS from a friend and enrolled. She soon found the knowledge and guidance to successfully further her business.
