Give Me Shelter

Each year, thousands of women and children flee domestic violence to find shelter at one of the Edmonton and area Women’s Shelters. Many women leave quickly with their children taking nothing more than the clothes on their backs in a desperate attempt to get away. Having somewhere safe to stay is vital to these families.

No one should be forgotten during the holidays.
