Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter supports women fleeing abusive situations by providing legal assistance, adult and youth counselling, and safe transitional housing where they can live with their children. Because the women residing at Ernestine’s came to the shelter in haste in order to escape domestic violence, many were forced to abandon most, if not all, of their possessions, leaving them few tools with which to start new lives.
To ease the transition to independence for women leaving the shelter, Ernestine’s provides them with start-up kits containing a $100 gift voucher to a local department store. There, women can acquire their choice of necessities—including kitchen supplies and other domestic items—to stock their new homes according to what they need. Equipping shelter residents with these household supplies as they start off in new homes can help reduce moving-related stress and anxiety for the 150 women who transition through Ernestine’s annually.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help provide kitchen supplies for women transitioning out of shelter life. If G-Team members raise $400, Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter can provide four women living in the shelter with $100 gift vouchers to a local department store. Each additional $100 raised will fund another gift voucher for one woman or family.
