Women's Voices

"Daily groups help with not feeling like you are the only idiot who fell for a partner’s lies.

Weekly counselling helps with finding ways to get over the blame, shame, guilt and anger, and start healthier habits.

Bread donations help with weekly grocery budget. Clothing donations also help with the budget.

WINGS is needed in this province. Our children deserve to see their mothers safe. Our children will take over this world eventually, isn't it better to fill their eyes with hopes and dreams than fear and despair? Do it for the kids!"
