Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter: We are hosting this webinar in support of Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter, who have been heavily impacted by the increased demands posed by Covid-19 and would greatly benefit from our donation.

Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter was opened in 1983 by a group of community members who saw a need for a safe place for women and children fleeing violence and abuse.  The founders were pleased to name the shelter after Ernestine van Marle, a local community activist who gave them support and guidance as they began the shelter, and continues to support the shelter’s efforts in ending violence against women and children until her passing in 2006. Ernestine’s embodied all the characteristics that our shelter aspires towards energetic, community-minded, supportive, and dedicated.


We hope to see you all there!
