Nanaimo’s Haven House – Campaign for Courage
Nanaimo’s Haven House is just that – a haven for women and children in need. I was driving down Bowen Road today and I saw a big sign promoting the Haven House’ new campaign to raise awareness and funds for the society. It is called the Campaign for Courage. For the past 30 years Haven House has offered shelter to women of all ages, who have been physically, sexually and/or emotionally abused and for their children.
The Haven House website states:
Haven Society has grown from a small network of volunteer safe-houses to a multi-site agency serving the central Island from Ladysmith to Qualicum with comprehensive programming. Haven Society continues to play a critical role in educating the local community about the prevalence of violence and its impact on all of us.
The Campaign for Courage is a fund raising initiative to finance a new, 7431 sq. foot building. The Haven Societies vision is to bring all of Haven’s community-based services into one building. The new Community Services Building will be built on the site adjacent to the existing Transition House. Combining all of Haven’s programs and administration into one public location will not only be more efficient and accessible for clients but will also help to raise the profile and support of the services.
