Thanks to the generous support of the surrounding community the Women's Centre located on Sandy St. in Chatham got a facelift in 2011. A 2300 square foot addition features five new bedrooms and three new handicapped-accessible washrooms. The five new bedrooms have been furnished to accomodate large and small families and every area has been modified for women and children with disabilities. The existing interior was renovated, new furniture was purchased and an enclosed children's play area was constructed.The 1.6 Million Dollar dollar project received two thirds of the cost through stimulus funding from the federal and provincial governments. The centre raised $970,000 for the renovations through its Rebuilding Families Together campaign. Two of the successful components of that campaign were "Through Women's Hands" and the "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" for men. Many of the dignitaries in Chatham-Kent participate in the Walk. The event is part of an International Event that began 10 years ago and each year in September, men from across Chatham-Kent as well as many other cities, slip on some red high heels and walking to raise awareness and help bring to an end violence against women. The Event has had as many as 100 participants The walk is open to all males but only those 16 years and older can wear red shoes. June 2015 was another very successful event. Although it rained the participants and the spectators moved inside the Downtown Chatham Centre and the event continued.
Women who arrive at the centre may stay one night or longer. The goal of the centre and its counsellors is to provide a SAFE Haven for these woman in need often with their children as well. Part of the program is to equip them to take care of themselves and often job interviews, learning new skills and planning for the future are a part of that.
This is a perfect example of the caring, family orientated community that Chatham-Kent is! We reach out to our people. Patricia Arango, executive director of the centre credited the generosity of the community as well as the hard work of the staff and board members in making the project come to life. Chatham-Kent contributed $100,000.00 through programs offered by Health and Family Services. Call me Wayne Liddy 519-436-4810 Royal Le Page Peifer Realty Inc.
