Montreal’s Shield of Athena Family Services needs your help as they raise funds to build another home for female victims of domestic violence. The $4-million-dollar project will cater to women and their children who need a « second step » resource, giving them a place to live for up to a year and a half as they rebuild their lives. The building will have a total of 17 units, for single women, and women with children. Government funding will cover most of the shelter’s start-up costs but Shield of Athena needs to raise $500,000 on its own.
