My Message

It's cold out there. And on February 20, I'm going to do something about it. Homelessness is a serious problem in Ottawa, and so often overlooked or even ignored. But as hard as it is to think about, more than 7,000 people stayed in Ottawa shelters in 2017. Almost a thousand were women.

Women become homeless for a number of reasons. They might be struggling with a mental health challenge that forces them to stay in hospital, losing income. They may be unable to afford rent – indeed, a one-bedroom apartment in Ottawa costs nearly $11,000 a year, but a single woman receiving Ontario Disability Support receives just over $12,000. They may have fled abuse at home. Or, they might be new immigrants to Canada, with no network or support system to rely on.

COVID has increased the need for women to find safe places to live. 

I am asking you to make a donation in support of Cornerstone Housing for Women. The work they are doing  locally is critical.  Thank you!
