Women & Children’s Shelter

Dear Walter Doret,

On behalf of Women & Children’s Shelter of Barrie, we would like to thank you for supporting and contributing to the success of our 8th Annual ‘Walk a Mile In Her Shoes’ event at Heritage Park on September 15th 2018.    Together, we raised over $40,000! This will help over 35 women and children stay in the shelter for up to 10 weeks. Here they will find comfort and have a refuge from the abuse in their home.   The #1 factor that will affect a woman’s decision to leave an abusive situation is a visible change in the level of community support. Your support has made a positive impact for the women and children staying in the shelter and those who remain in the community. One of our residents recently told us, “Thank you all for providing a place my son and I felt safe and cared for.”  Please know that you have made a difference in a dark night of someone else’s soul.
