May was ‘Mom Month’ and you helped make it truly special!
Mom Month is all about celebrating and honouring the moms who bravely seek sanctuary to create a brighter future for their kids, and moms whose generous support uplifts families at the shelter.
They were so happy to receive your many thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts and treats including gift boxes of cosmetics and beauty products, brand new purses, and hygiene packages.
Thanks to generous donors like you, moms enjoyed a fabulous Mother’s Day brunch: “The tables were decorated, spirits were high, and the families were very appreciative, especially the mothers” said Julius Samaniego, Weekend Manager at our Family Shelter.
“I really appreciate it. It’s like the best gift ever.”

Stylists from cabi clothing held an event for moms at our shelters where they provided the latest fashions and helped moms pick out the best clothes and jewelry to showcase their beauty.
With many young moms and infants seeking sanctuary at the shelter, it was amazing to see so many baby care packages donated to help moms at the shelter to care for their little ones.
They were so grateful. It was especially touching to see all the lovely messages from donors who made their gifts in honour of their moms as a way of saying thank you and paying it forward.
Volunteers Stephanie and Katie Porter and their mom Mel celebrated Mother’s Day in a unique way by donating and hosting a special brunch at our VAW shelter.
Local singer and supporter Liz Lokre brought her mom to the shelter to sing uplifting songs with the moms and kids.
All of your kind support made a difference. Together your joyful celebration of Mom Month raised over $7,000 to support programs for moms and families at the Red Door. Thank you for standing with brave moms. Thank you for giving help and hope.
