WHY SUPPORT THE DENISE HOUSE?
You may be surprised to hear that in any given year we help 32% more women and children than we are funded for by the Government
In the last year:
120 Women and Children resided with us
1090 Crisis Calls were answered and provided Support and Information
We provided approximately 40,000 Meals and Snacks
We provided over 4,000 Safe Sleep Nights
400+ Women and Children received Support through our Community Outreach Support Programs
Approximately 800 Volunteer Hours were provided
A Note From Our Executive Director:
Prior to the COVID 19 pandemic and provincial shut down, The Denise House would see and provide support to women,
with or without children, over our funded capacity. That was the need for services. As the provincial shut down occurred
and stay at home orders came into place, women experiencing violence and abuse became more trapped in their
situations than ever, feeling all the more helpless and without supports, stronger fears of reaching out for help. Our
service statistics from the past year are a demonstration of this fear and uncertainty of reaching out for help. The Denise House continues
to encourage women to seek the support and assistance they need and we have seen an increase of women reaching out
as the province and services have gone through re-opening stages over the last year.
As an essential service, we will
continue to change and assess how best we can provide much needed services for women and their children in the most
healthy and safe way possible.
