I am at 0% of my goal!
Without compassion for others, we lose sight of what it is to be human. I want to live in a world in which we have no need for shelters. Until that day comes, I will continue to ensure that women and children have a safe place to seek refuge from domestic abuse. The problem of domestic violence impacts people in every walk of life, age group, and income bracket. From emergency counselling, to job skills programs, Girl Space (teaching students about healthy relationships), and transitional housing, the YWCA does so much more than simply provide shelter. Maybe you know someone that has needed to escape domestic violence, and maybe you don't. Perhaps it's impacted you personally. I've never used an ambulance, but am certainly happy to know that they are available, should I ever call. Donate, walk or volunteer because it's the right thing to do. As a community, I have seen the citizens of Peterborough move mountains. I am overwhelmed by what we can accomplish together. Let's make this year our best yet! In the immortal albeit paraphrased words of Bob Dylan..... come on now, let us give you, shelter from the storm. <3
