A big thank you
A big thank you to Jason, Matt, Brandon and James who have had to brave this long stretch of cold weather outside. Not only does this weather we have had make it very uncomfortable to work, but it also presents significant construction challenges. We appreciate your efforts very much.
We are doing a collection of the most needed items for WIN House for the month of March starting on March 8th which is International Women’s Day. WIN House has been operating and providing for women and children fleeing domestic abuse for 50 years as of this year! The situations can be so incredibly challenging, and the services WIN House offers are critical to the people that use them. They say it allows them to “catch their breath”. WIN House gives these women and children some hope for their future and some tools to help them to see and achieve a safe living environment.
Some stats on WIN House:
- WIN House has 3 shelters in confidential locations in the City. 2 of them are emergency shelters.
- WIN House received 3000 calls on their help line in 2018.
- WIN House takes in 800-900 women and children each year.
- WIN House had to turn away 2200 women and children last year.
In summary, WIN House does amazing work, but they need more help. They need more housing. They need more supplies. They need more awareness to be spread.
Stay tuned for more information on this initiative.
