Deltassist has a donations wish list that is continuously up-dated as its wishes are fulfilled by generous donors.
There is an urgent need for donations to support child minding for women’s groups.
Deltassist has several programs that provide assistance to women experiencing relationship violence. Our programs include individual and group counselling for adult female victims of relationship violence and survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
Many women wishing to attend these groups need access to child minding in order to attend. Unfortunately funding for these groups rarely comes with the additional funding for child minding. This means that many women could not attend and find the support they need.
Without child minding available at our last group 10 out of the 13 women that registered would not have been able to attend. That is very sad. We need your help.
We are asking our community to help us with this desperate need for funding to support the added costs of child minding for any of our groups for women facing relationship violence.
Your donation of $800 will fund child minding for a 6-8 week group.
Your donation of $1000 will fund child minding for one of our 10 week groups.
Please support us in helping those in need.
In addition our urgent need for child minding funding we have a wish list. Our wish list has two parts: funding for operational expenses and support for capital items:
• Stove for conference rooms
• Dishwasher for conference area
• Electronic reader board for North Delta office
• Professional quality event tent with Deltassist logo
• Playroom equipment
• Child minding
• Specialized groups
• Seniors counselor
• Anger management for men
• Community fund
There are many ways to make your donation: online using CanadaHelps; by credit card or cheque. You may want to designate your donation for a specific purpose or simply have it go towards general operations.
