Safe Shelter Program
Together we will make a difference
The Halton Women’s Place Safe Shelter Program gives corporations the opportunity to partner with us to provide safety, shelter and support to women and children affected by violence in their homes.
Through this program, you will position your company as one that is recognized as taking a lead role in ending violence against women and children. Your donation will show your commitment to creating healthy relationships and healthy communities.
|Women’s Quiet Lounge||$5,000||$5,000|
|Communal Living Room||$10,000||$10,000|
These figures are based on a 12-month period.
When you sponsor a room with a Safe Shelter Sponsorship, a plaque with your name will be hung in that room for everyone to see. This shows our clients, staff, volunteers and other community members that you support a future without violence.
For more information on the Safe Shelter Program please email Carm Bozzo at: email@example.com subject Safe Shelter.
