Dear friends and supporters,
March marked one year since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. As our team reflected on the past 365 days, the themes of perseverance, tenacity, struggle and hope were all top of mind. The shelter was able to adhere to many layers of mandatory health measures and the team and clients came together like never before to support each other as we navigated uncharted territory. WCS has remained open, available, and safe for anyone experiencing crisis or abuse.
I wanted to share this with you because as supporters of the shelter, your commitment to our vision of a safe and secure community without abuse provided our team with the courage, strength and determination to continue to do this work. Thank you for sharing in our vision.
While vaccine programs continue to role out we know that Covid-19 is not over yet and continues to create challenges for individuals and families who may not be safe at home. If you or someone you know is not safe because of abuse, please reach out for support, by calling our crisis line 1-877-934-6634.
CEO, Wheatland Crisis Society
