Sky's the Limit Album > STL donates 20 laptops to the North York Women's Shelter!
The project to get a women’s shelter in North York began in 1980 when the women’s services committee of North York Inter Agency Council started proceedings to incorporate an organization to start a shelter. Reports from two North York hospitals which said they treat four or five cases of battered women a week was the cause for the creation of the project.

Since September of 1984 our shelter has been in operation 24-hours a day, 365 days a year and is able to accommodate 30 women and children at any given time. Through their holistic approach to programming they have been able to help women and children heal from the trauma of abuse. For 25 years they have been a place of empowerment, safety and offered countless women and children a promise of a better tomorrow. After all these years they are still there and have renewed hope in the lives of thousands women and children.
