Ernestine's Women's Shelter

Cleaning supplies for a shelter

There’s nothing better than a clean house.  Sparkling countertops and the feeling that you could eat off the floor. Living in a clean environment gives you a sense of wellbeing, which plays a role in your physical and mental health. Some Moms say the secret to a clean household is never letting your children or husband enter, but alas, one can only dream.

Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter offers much needed support and housing to women and children escaping violence. They provide accommodations with the basic necessities so their members can begin rebuilding their lives. This support includes new bedding, clothes, backpacks, school supplies, toiletries and baby supplies.  With a pandemic in full swing, they need help supplying household cleaning products for the women and families to utilize.

How you can help

We’re pooling funds to purchase various cleaning staples like liquid soap, detergent, toilet paper, Lysol wipes, toilet bowl cleaner and so on. We want these individuals to focus on healing, and living in cleanliness is one more way to help them move forward in comfort.

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
