Imagine the encouragement a woman at WINGS feels when she sees our long list of supporters.
When you contribute to WINGS, you are supporting every woman in our shelter and each of their brave decisions to move forward with their children towards an independent life free
of family violence.
A very special thank you to our many supporters -- what we accomplish at WINGS would not be possible without you!
Facts About Family Violence
Less than 10% of all sexual assaults are reported to police.
(“Self-reported victimizations reported to police, 1999, 2004 and 2009,” Criminal victimization in Canada, 2009, Samuel Perreault and Shannon Brennan, Statistics Canada, 2010)
Violence against women happens in all cultures and religions, in all ethnic and racial communities, at every age, and in every income group.
"Being able to get into WINGS changed my life and my son’s life too. We are safe from my ex-spouse. I have learned to heal and grow. I have learned to let go of things I can’t change. I have learned to forgive myself and my ex. I have grown stronger. WINGS is a life saver for me.
The counsellors are great and very helpful. I look forward to going to group; to know you are not alone and that other women have been in similar situations. My son loves daycare; all the other kids to play with and develop friendships.
The province really needs programs like this and more of them. The shelters are full. It is easy to say, not my problem - until it happens to you or someone you know, like your Mom, Aunt, Niece, Sister, or Friend. It is devastating to families and we all need help up."
