Royal LePage Shelter Foundation
Safe Housing For All
As real estate professionals, we proudly dedicate our working lives to helping you find the foundation from which you can build your future. But we know a house is only a home when the people who live there feel safe, loved and accepted. Unfortunately, there are thousands of women and children across Canada who do not have that privilege.
On any given day in Canada, it is estimated that more than 3,000 women (and their 2,500 children) are living in an emergency shelter to escape domestic violence.
The Royal LePage Difference
Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs. Every dollar raised directly impacts the more than 50,000 women and children who are served each year by the shelters and support programs we fund. Since 1998, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has raised more than $35 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners.
Doing Our Part
Whether through donating a portion of our commissions, volunteering our time or hosting local fundraising events, Royal LePage REALTORS® are dedicated to providing safe housing for all. We are proud to be working with women’s shelters to bring hope and security to women and children experiencing violence and abuse. With our national partners, including Canadian Women’s Foundation and Women’s Shelters Canada, we are part of a movement to end domestic violence in Canada through prevention and education, including funding teen healthy relationship programs.
