    Support the Abrigo Centre through an online donation

    The Holiday Season is a time of giving. It can take the form of giving a present to a friend or loved one or giving back to the community that serves us all. More specifically, you can give to the Abrigo Centre as we continue our mission to help and protect women and children who are facing domestic abuse.

    If you would like to support the Abrigo Centre now to take advantage of a tax receipt for the 2108 calendar year, you can give safely and securely online through our partner CanadaHelps.

    Simply click on the "Donate Now" button at the top right on any web page and you'll be able to give your gift directly to Abrigo. Help make a difference for the 6,500 clients in all our programs that we serve each year. Make your gift before year-end to get a 2018 tax receipt.

    Thank you for your support!
