Transition Society 

Fundraising and Events

CRNITS relies on incredible support from fundraising events throughout the year to provide services for women, with or without children, fleeing violence, impacted by homelessness, mental health challenges and/or impacted by substance misuse.

Sponsorships play a vital role in the success of our fundraising events and is a great way to enhance your corporate philanthropy.

By participating in an event or initiative, you can help women in your community receive the appropriate services, safety and housing.

Why support vulnerable Women ?

Every six days in Canada, a women is killed by her intimate partner.

Statistics Canada, 2021.

Receiving the appropriate services, safety and housing while having someone walk their journey beside them is the catalyst for change for our clients!

CRNITS provides more than just a safe shelter. It provides a community of support and continuum of services. The Society assists women who are fleeing abuse and seeking emergency shelter at the Ann Elmore Transition House, or at one of our remote safe homes. Our counselling services benefit women who are overcoming trauma and other challenges, while our supportive recovery program addresses substance misuse issues. Women who are unsheltered or struggling through poverty benefit from our Rose Harbour’s Supportive Transitional Housing & Women’s Change Program and from supportive resources and poverty relief available at our Drop-in Women's Resource Centre.

For more than 30 years CRNITS has worked to improve and implement new services directly related to the issues of violence against women. Our services provide immediate response for those in imminent danger, and longer-term response for those working to heal the effects of violence and abuse. Together, with your help, we can continue to provide programs and services to women, children and our community. But the cost to accommodate over 4,400 women, with or without children, per year is expensive and isn’t possible without the generosity of people and businesses like you.
