Cochrane Women's Emergency Shelter Society

Requesting $120000


Helping women and children in Cochrane and Area living with or leaving domestic violence, Big Hill Haven is a small non-profit working to meet the growing demand for domestic violence services. We serve a rural community of over 33,000.

Through 2019-2020, we helped 62 clients and provided 82 nights of shelter. Adapting to the need, in August 2020, we opened the “Haven” our first shelter space. To maintain and expand our services we need sustainable operational support. Funding will support outreach services, housing, and the organizations operations including fundraising and communications.

In November, we launched the HUNDRED FOR THE HAVEN. This monthly giving program has a annual goal of $120,000. The call is for 100 DONORS to donate $100/month for 1 YEAR. To join the HUNDRED FOR THE HAVEN or review our other funding options visit our website at

We are also recruiting for board members. Specifically a Treasurer and Recording Secretary.
