Yellow Brick House

Markham Shelter

What If Home Is A Dangerous — Even Deadly — Place to Be?

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, domestic violence has increased in Canada by 30%. Yellow Brick House has seen the impact first hand through the many calls to our 24/7 crisis and support lines and the thousands of women and children that we provided services to last year.

But our doors have and will continue to remain open.

Annually it costs $631,000 to keep the Markham shelter open and provide lifesaving services and prevention programs. Your multi-year pledge allows families who arrive with nothing to be provided with shelter, food and counselling support as they transition to a live free from violence.

What Does It Take to Rebuild A Life?

Your multi-year pledge gives families the skills, resources, and hope to start again through:

  • Safe living space
  • Trauma counselling
  • Parenting classes
  • Group support
  • Legal information access
  • Transitional housing support
  • Employment support
  • Transportation
  • Community service referrals
  • Basic housewares
  • Food and clothing

The need is urgent.  Take a leadership role in our community and give families a fresh start.
With your help, women can escape violence and rebuild their lives with courage and confidence.
