Sunrise Carnival May 2014










Hi everyone,

Although the past week was filled with rain….better weather has arrived just in time!

 So gather up the loved ones in your lives and become a kid again for a few hours!  Can’t you just smell the popcorn and taste the candy floss?   

 This Carnival is very special and marked with unconditional support from Voisin Developments, a magnificent supporter of Women’s Crisis Services. 

They have once again organized this fun event at the Sunrise Mall in Kitchener.  The location is fantastic as you can also include shopping on your agenda for the day!

I continue to be disheartened to report that instead of working myself out of a job, our occupancy continues to reach record levels at both Anselma House and Haven House.  Haven House continues to struggle with overcrowded conditions and residents needing to share bedrooms and washrooms.  The funds we receive from this carnival will be allocated to rebuilding Haven House in Cambridge.

 Check out the extended time that the Carnival will be here…..right through to and including Mother’s Day.

Please know how much your support means to our agency and the women and children we serve.

Best regards,


Mary Zilney MSW, RSW

Chief Executive Officer
