Support Me as I Step Forward To End Violence Against Women
I am walking to honour the women and children that Interim Place serves, who have the courage and the resilience to step out and start a new life full of peace and free of violence. I am making a statement that Violence Against Women is unacceptable and its time we step forward to end violence in our community. Your generous donation will go directly to supporting the women and children currently supported by Interim Place through our Shelter & Community and Outreach Programs.
