Turn Fear Into Hope !
Barbara Ann's MARATHONS FOR SHELTER 2011, 2014, 2015,2018
A Safe Home......... A Loving Family........
The joy of being able to live your life "free from fear" in a safe home with the love of family is something many of us take for granted. This is not always the case! For some families their "home" is not a safe place, as every day women and children across Canada are either physically or sexually abused.
DID YOU KNOW?
51% of women in Canada have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence since age 16
360,000 children are exposed to domestic violence each year
1 to 2 women are murdered by a current or former partner each week in Canada
Physical and sexual abuse costs Canada over $4 billion dollars each year in social services, healthcare, and criminal justice
HOPE........To help give HOPE to families by providing shelter and a safe environment so they can re-build their self-esteem in order to begin a new life. HELP BREAK THE CYCLE!!
