About Women's Centre of Halton:

Founded in 1989, the Women’s Centre of Halton (WCH) is a safe place within the Oakville community where women coming out of abuse shelters can receive ongoing support. It is dedicated to supporting women through times of crisis, stress, and transition by providing programs and services to effect positive change. Its programs include: supportive counselling in 8 languages (60% of 2013 program spending), courses on entrepreneurship (16%), a bullying program (9%),  employment services such as resume writing, job searching and interviewing (6%), self-esteem workshops (5%) and violence against women programs (5%).

Since its founding, the Women’s Centre has supported approximately 45,000 women. In 2013 it served 1,357 counselling clients (including in-person, telephone counselling and online counselling through its website) and had 1,018 group workshop attendees.

Financial Review:

Fundraising costs are 6% of donations and administrative costs are 6% of revenue; however, the charity reports some donations net of expenses without providing details of the costs to raise those funds. WCH has funding reserves of $117k, which cover 62% of annual program costs.

This report is old and we are not seeing much donor interest necessitating an update. If you are a donor and would like to see an update, please contact us at Charity Intelligence.
