Warmth for the Winter

Warmth for the Winter

About This Campaign

The holiday season is quickly approaching and with it comes the cold weather.

Last year, we experienced challenges with our boiler which caused us to go without heat for days at a time throughout the harsh winter months.

In order to keep the 50 women we serve each night at our shelter, comfortable and safe, we had no choice but to fix our boiler - a large expense of $35,000.

As an independent, non-profit agency, this was a project we really couldn't afford to do, but also couldn't afford to do without.

To make it happen, we had to pull funds from other programs including our food budget, funds dedicated to our hydro expenses and more. Nearly one year later, we are still feeling the effects.

Through this GiveEffect campaign, we are looking to raise $15,000 by the end of January 2016, to help us restore half of the program funds we had to draw out in order to fix our boiler system.

Please help us continue bringing warmth to the women who rely on our services through a gift that will go back into our program funds and allow us to continue Street Haven for many more years to come.

Street Haven at the Crossroads

Campaign to Support Street Haven at the Crossroads

Since 1965, Street Haven has provided services to women in need in the downtown Toronto area. Our programs include Supportive Housing, Addiction Services, a Learning Centre and the city's oldest women's only Emergency Shelter. We believe that all women deserve, along with the physical necessities of life, to be treated with dignity and to be given the tools and opportunities to achieve their goals. We are guided by the principles of anti-racism/anti-oppression and are committed to women's engagement and women's leadership. We believe in women's right to self-determination. We believe in the values of equity and diversity; in partnerships, education and training. We believe in personal responsibility and accountability, in social justice and advocacy. We achieve these values by offering responsive, reflective and holistic woman-centered supports. We envision a community where all women are safe.
