📢 𝐇𝐔𝐆𝐄 𝐀𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭!! 📢
💜Mark your calendars for an unforgettble evening as we celebrate the triumph of the women and children who have found the 𝗖𝗢𝗨𝗥𝗔𝗚𝗘 to reach out for help and support. 💜
💜After a pause due to covid, we're excited to return with a night filled with empowerment and support. 💜
On March 21, 2024 The Denise House will celebrate the triumph of the women and children who have found the courage to reach out for help and support by holding our Celebration of Courage Event. This event holds significant importance as it not only commemorates our 40 years of service to the local community but also marks the inauguration of our NEW 33-bed shelter, designed to be fully accessible for all abilities and complete with pet accommodations!
Although we see the cycles of abuse through generations of families where violence goes unaddressed, we see first-hand the amazing victories of women with renewed self-esteem, skills and supports in place that encourages them to prevail and soar after leaving The Denise House.
Each year over 230 women and children live at The Denise House. More than 450 women and children also receive support and counselling through our Outreach Programs, but all this does not come close to meeting the need and demand for service. With your help we can make a difference in so many lives!
We are excited to announce that, Perdita Felicien will be our Emcee for the evening. During her career as a 100m hurdler Perdita earned numerous honours including Canada’s female athlete of the year, Keys to her hometown - Pickering, ON, The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal & is an inductee of Ontario & Athletics Canada Sports Halls of Fame. Perdita retired from professional sport in 2013 & is now a bestselling author, a sports broadcaster, television host & keynote speaker. Perdita is an advocate for multiple humanitarian organizations and a portion of all her book sales go to The Denise House, who helped her family get on their feet in the 1980s.To learn more about Perdita, visit her website at www.perditafelicien.com.
