BRIDGING THE GAP

75% GOAL REACHED!

Help us reach our goal to create more space for women and children impacted by family violence and homelessness:

Imagine Making A Desperate Call For Help...

You need a safe place to stay because things have gotten out of control at home…
It takes all the courage you have to make that call, but the support worker just told you that they don’t have room. They really wanted to help but couldn’t give you a place to stay for the night. You have to try again the next day.

Unfortunately, the Lloydminster Interval Home has seen a drastic spike in the number of distress calls from women who need a safe place to stay for themselves and their children. In 2018 we were unable to accommodate 1819 women and children because we simply didn’t have room.
These women were often left in an unsafe situation with great uncertainty and their lives in danger. We can’t allow this to happen any longer. Your help is needed to increase our existing shelter space to welcome more women and children who need our help today.

You can help us to answer their calls for help and a safe place to stay with, “Yes, we have room, you will be safe here.” Your gift will help expand our existing shelter with 12 more beds, creating a safe space for more women and children. They depend on it. You can help.

Thank you for helping us to ‘Bridge the Gap’
– Because HOPE needs a space to GROW.

Fact: Lloydminster Interval Home turns away 5 people every day.

In 2019, 1,197 women and 1,108 children were turned away from the Lloydminster Interval Home due to lack of accommodations.

THANK YOU to the multiple individuals and businesses who have made this possible!

The addition of these bedrooms to our existing shelter has allowed us to keep six bedrooms open during the COVID-19 pandemic with each family being able to access their own bathroom. Without this addition, we would have only been able to keep four bedrooms open in order to adhere to government and health regulations. We are humbled by the generosity of our community. Because of you, our donors, we have been able to continue providing crisis support and care to women, children, and youth in our community during one of the most unprecedented times in our history.

Help Bridge the Gap

We can’t allow this to happen any longer. We need your help to increase our shelter space to welcome more women and children who need our help today.
Our goal is to one day have a new shelter – but for now we need to increase our current shelter of 21 beds to 33 beds.

Creating more space for women and children impacted by family violence and homelessness has been completed in phases.

Phase 1

The first phase of this project was to move the administration staff and offices off site to a vacant area in our Youth Centre building.

Phase 2

The next phase consisted of renovating the space in the shelter into welcoming bedrooms and change the two existing washrooms into full bathrooms and bathtubs. New flooring and painting were also part of the renovation phase.

Phase 3

The final phase included increasing our staffing compliment to prepare for additional people in the shelter and furnishing the updated bedrooms.
