Women's Habitat - Under the Tuscan Sun

Description: With an optimistic theme, "Under the Tuscan Sun" received a large turnout in support of Women's Habitat recently at the Old Mill. Executive Director Silvia Samsa reminded us of the 40 years now that the shelter has been at capacity, with some 725 requests just in this year alone. Sadly, there is never an empty bed. Today, the need for an emergency shelter for women and children experiencing domestic violence also stems from the lack of safe, affordable housing. Special guest speaker, Valentina Maya, shared her personal account of how the shelter was there in her time of need, giving a face to the story of so many others. Guests enjoyed a night of food, entertainment, and silent auction items, knowing they were supporting a very worthy cause. It was a high-energy evening with Arisa Cox returning as emcee for the event and keeping the night upbeat. For more information, visit womens-habitat.ca
