Women’s Transition House Gives Abused Seniors Hope.

“Suddenly, you find yourself at the bottom rung of the ladder … You wouldn’t think this could happen to you, then it does.”

Faith was in her early 50s by the time she decided to leave her husband. She had suffered through decades of physical and emotional abuse before saying ‘no more’ — but that’s not something she talks freely about.

We are a group of Oak Bay High leadership students who volunteered for the Victoria Women’s transition house at the marathon on Sunday, October 9th. We helped out at the cheer station on Dallas Road. There were so many dedicated volunteers, at the cheer station, we had one person with a megaphone, encouraging the runners and walkers with pom-poms and posters. We felt that the runner and walkers were encouraged by our cheering. We noticed that because of our cheering, the runners and walkers were having a more enjoyable time. Thank you to the Victoria Women’s Transition House for letting us be a part of this experience.

Dear Friends,

I want to express my deepest appreciation and millions of “Thank Yous” to the staff and volunteers, as well as donors for our Christmas Hamper last month. In times of turmoil for us your initial phone call for offering it brought joy and hope. For the weeks after, I felt like we were not forgotten, nor let alone. This feeling of being part of our community gave me the courage to continue to overcome my daily challenges. I was able to save/use money in a prudent way for our daily needs, and also to help pay for huge medical/rehab bills from my injuries sustained in the past. I can’t envision how I would have been able to afford many presents for my son nor to even have the physical stamina and strength to shop and wrap multiple presents while still in active rehab for many injuries. ~Hamper Recipient
