Ernestine's Women's Shelter

Baby essentials for a shelter

Babies cry a lot! When they cry, it’s their way of signalling that they expect attention and care. One of the biggest culprits causing them to wail is because they are hungry. The solution is simple, feed them, which is easier said than done for some mothers.

At Ernestine’s Women Shelter, mothers and children have escaped violent situations and stay there to rebuild what’s broken. The shelter provides accommodations from 6 months to a year with the basic necessities, but they are running out of certain essential baby items due to a growing demand for assistance.

How you can help

We’re pooling funds to purchase an array of baby staples like formula, food, diapers, shampoo, and so much more. Let’s help keep these babies (and mothers) happy because no one likes a crying baby!

More Details: Ernestine's Women's Shelter

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.
As a 32-bed emergency shelter with 14 private bedrooms, they provide a home for the women and their children – who stay for six months to a year – and then support their members in finding appropriate permanent housing.

Ernestine’s provides their shelter clients with all the basic necessities they might need while staying at the shelter. This includes new bedding, clothes (coats, shoes, winter boots, school clothes, etc.), backpacks, school supplies, toiletries, baby supplies (formula, diapers, strollers, etc.), as well as prescriptions not covered by OHIP, Presto cards, and gift cards for food and clothes.

They are dedicated to helping their clients rebuild their lives by providing crisis intervention and a range of holistic support services, while acknowledging the multitude of issues facing survivors of abuse.

When Everything Changed

It was February 2018, and I was running super late for an important pitch meeting for a big account. I was stressed and anxious about closing the deal. I parked in the underground lot and hightailed it up the stairs to the street for the short walk to work. As I looked up, I saw a disheveled man with an oversized jacket standing at the corner.

Troop Started a Year Ago – Is it Working?

It was a year ago this month that I started Troop. The idea was simple. I believed that if more neighbours knew about the needs in their area then they would be more willing to help. I believed (and still do!) that more people want to help
