Johnston & Daniel is very proud to support the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to supporting shelters and ending violence against women and children. Every year the Shelter Foundation raises over $1 million to provide a safe haven and new beginnings to more than 30,000 women and children each year. Brookfield Real Estate Services underwrites all the administration costs, therefore 100% of every REALTOR® and support staff contribution goes directly to the cause.
In Toronto we partner with the YWCA Arise Shelter. Named Arise for the spirit of perseverance that women who leave abuse bring to their struggle, this 27 bed shelter is making a real difference in the lives of women and children fleeing violence. With staff support available 24/7, this shelter provides on-site employment counselling, parenting support, addictions counselling trauma and mental health support to women and children using the Arise Shelter.
In Oakville we support Halton Women’s Place, which provides a 24-hour crisis line with a direct connection to a trained Crisis Intervention Counsellor who can provide support, information, resources, crisis counselling, and safety planning; Outreach Services, which are community-based services for women and their children who are experiencing abuse, including support, community referrals, safety planning, crisis counselling; and Residential Services – Safe, secure shelter and support for women and their children who are experiencing abuse.
