Your Help Is Our Foundation

Just like a house, a partnership is built on a solid foundation. Mutual respect, open communication, empathy and understanding are pillars for strong relationships.

But for many, a house is not a home; it is not a place that provides comfort and security. That is why the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is dedicated to helping women and children find a safe haven when their lives are torn apart. We also fund violence-prevention programs such as the Fourth R, to encourage kids to form healthy relationships in their early years.

Many Royal LePage Realtors support our foundation by donating a portion of their commission each time a home is bought or sold. With every transaction, we are helping people rebuild their lives, one step at a time.

Violence is a cycle we can change. You can help too. Visit http://www.royallepage.ca/donations .

 


Why We Help

Violence is a social issue that affects us all. It is also a problem that many are silent about, making many unaware of the growing problem…

  • Over a million children in Canada have witnessed violence against their mother. 1
  • Every minute of every day a woman or child in Canada is being sexually assaulted. 2
  • Women are three times more likely than men to be injured by spousal violence and five times more likely to require medical attention. 3
  • Women are five times more likely to fear for their lives as a result of spousal abuse. 4
  • Police were aware of previous domestic violence in about 70% of homicides involving estranged female spouses. 5

Take a stand for violence prevention and to help your local shelter.
