Red Shoe Walk raises Record-Breaking $110,000 for shelter operations!

Throughout the month of September, our incredible supporters worked to raise valuable funds towards the Red Shoe Walk.  The walk itself took place on September 23 on a sunny morning downtown!

We walked to the sweet beats of DJ Nation and had so many sponsors and friends come out to support!  Thanks to all who participated, and our additional satellite events throughout the month, we’re thrilled to share that we’ve raised $110,000 for shelter operations, a record-breaking fundraiser for us!

Thank you to all who participated, donated, volunteered and sponsored!  We are so grateful for your ongoing support!  These funds go a long for us being able to continue to provide a safe haven for women and their children experiencing abuse in South Georgian Bay.

East Coast Kitchen Party Raises $30K For Food Security

On Wednesday, May 10 My Friend’s House hosted their inaugural Ultimate East Coast Kitchen Party at Harbour Street Fish Bar!  With 150 people in attendance and a fabulous evening of entertainment from Strange Potatoes, $30,000 was raised to support food security at the shelter.

In true Maritime fashion, we sat with new friends, ate delicious seafood and sang along with our Celtic favourites.  Thank you to all who attended and to all our sponsors who supported this event –, Alair Homes Collingwood, Robinson’s Paint and Wallpaper and Collingwood Charters.  We are so very grateful!

The Power of Purple

The colour purple is associated with the fight against domestic violence. It symbolizes the courage it takes for a woman to leave her abuser. But the courage of the woman alone is not enough to protect her and her family. It takes the courage of an entire community.
