How You Can Help

We need you!  You are key to ending violence against women and children!

Every time we help a woman or her kids we have to fundraise that money. Yes the walls are paid for but the women and children’s programs and supports are not. They are funded through individual donations and through events like this.  Your dollars provide transportation, court support, counselling, child empowerment, trauma recovery and joyful events. Your support provides recovery and resilience.

 

Donate household items

Sometimes, women must leave with few, if any, possessions.

Here is a list of items that women need to begin again, to turn their lives around.  We accept items that are "gently used". Due to health and safety regulations, toiletries and food items must be new and unopened.

If donating gently worn clothing, please donate only those items that you would still be proud to wear yourself.  Items that are ripped, stained or otherwise in unwearable condition should not be donated to Ingamo Homes.

Anyone interested in donating goods to Ingamo Homes is asked to call:

Telephone: (519) 421-0383 ext *222

  • Non-perishable food stuffs
  • Clothing for women and children
  • Bedding (sheets, blankets, comforters)

Volunteer your time

At Ingamo Homes, we believe that volunteers are a vital part of the services offered to abused women and their children. Our volunteers allow the existing services to run and allow our program to deliver intensive support to those in need. Volunteering allows the community to be more involved and informed about violence against women.

All of our volunteers are educated through orientation and training and are given clear directions. All are recognized for their hard work, and appreciated more than words can say. Volunteers are expected to honor their commitment, to use and maintain complete confidentiality, and contribute to the existing environment of fairness, respect and teamwork.

To learn more about how you can get involved please call (519) 421-0383 ext *223
