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.
