Christmas Sponsorship Program

With the holiday season quickly approaching we are launching our 2017 Christmas sponsorship program this week! WIT sponsors the women and children from each past year annually through the generosity of the Fredericton community <3


If interested there are several options for participation; you may sponsor an individual woman/child, a family, or the house itself which is always in need of such items as face cloths, towels, bedding (twin), cleaning supplies, or non-perishable food items!


For more information please call: 506-457-2770 or email childsupportworker@nb.aibn.com or contact us at www.womenintransitionhouse.ca

Youth Leadership in the Community :)

"No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted"
What started out as an individual class assignment has now wondrously snowballed into both a fundraiser for WIT as well as an opportunity to promote awareness! 
What a great example of youth leadership; love how she mentions the awareness factor first! 
Awareness is huge in addressing the issue of intimate partner violence so thank you for shining the light on it for us! Huge thanks to Mylaine & Krista Lea Touesnard of École Saint-Anne! Check out the interview with radio 93.1 below!
