Where the Money Goes

Atira believes individual donations from our donors should go directly towards helping the women and children we serve. Every penny of each dollar raised through individual donations is used for things like food for our residents in our shelters / transition housing, childcare for mom’s in groups, diapers, and to ensure there are 24 hour a day support staff at all of our shelter / transition housing and supportive housing programs.

Our funding for operating costs come from contracts with governments as well as grants from various foundations.

For more information about how your dollars are used, please contact Caithlin at 604.531.9143 or donations@atira.bc.ca
