Local Women’s Crisis Services receives funding for new women’s shelter

 Healing and new beginnings for 45 women and children in the Waterloo Region 

WATERLOO, ON (November 25, 2010) – Many more local women and children will be given the opportunity to heal and start a new life through the Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region’s most recent expansion project, construction of the new Anselma House.

The current Anselma House was built in 1989 as a 20 bed shelter, but now regularly houses 30-32 women and children, a clear indication that the Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region (WCSWR) needs more space.

Construction of the new Anselma House is well underway on a 1.7 acre property at 700 Heritage Drive in Kitchener, and will house 45 women and children. Thanks to the generosity of this community, the “Rebuild Anselma House…Rebuild Lives” campaign has raised over $7.2 million. Donations from individuals and corporations alike are driving the campaign closer to the goal of $8.4 million to complete Anselma House.

“Donations from local organizations, such as Sun Life Financial, play a huge part in our ability to provide effective programs and initiatives to abused women and children in the Waterloo Region, including this year’s Anselma House campaign,” said Mary Zilney, Executive Director of Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region. “These programs and initiatives are essential for helping individuals move beyond violence.”

Sun Life Financial is giving a donation of $10,000 to enhance the Food & Nutrition program at the new shelter, including the creation of an herb garden and the production of educational materials. “At Sun Life Financial, we believe that giving back to the community is a very important part of being a good corporate neighbour,” said Vice-President of Human Resources for Sun Life Financial Canada, Sandy Delamere. “Our dedication to health and wellness revolves around both our employees and the greater community, and we are proud to be able to contribute to the Food & Nutrition program at the new Anselma House.”

Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region is a charitable organization that operates two emergency shelters for abused women and their children: Anselma House in Kitchener and Haven House in Cambridge, plus a regional Outreach program. It is the only agency in Waterloo Region that provides these services. WCSWR also offers education programs on abuse and life skills development for both individuals and groups.
