I’m hopeful that you’ll support my fundraising efforts with a donation. The money raised from the Run for Women supports two women’s programs at Stella’s Circle: Naomi Centre and the Just Us Women’s Centre. Naomi Centre is the only emergency shelter for young women ages 16 – 30 in the province. The Just Us Women’s Centre works with women involved in the criminal justice system, providing one-on-one and group counselling in areas such as trauma, anger management, addictions, and peer support.
Women’s lives are impacted by your participation and your fundraising efforts. For $55, a young woman can participate in a therapeutic group session at Naomi Centre that focuses on empowering youth and ending sexual exploitation. A donation of $130 enables a woman to join a 10-week trauma group at the Just Us Women’s Centre. With your donation, women can receive the support they need.
Hope Lives Here.
“When I think of Naomi Centre at Stella’s Circle, I remember that every single staff member truly cared. It was more than a job for them. Some cried with me and some laughed with me. They always listened, never judged and they cared about what happened to me. The staff supported me in every way possible. It has made such a difference to my life.”
~Former Naomi Centre resident
“The Just Us Women’s Centre at Stella’s Circle gave me hope. It gave me a different view on life and helped me learn a lot about myself. I’d be lost without the support I have received here.”

Using the funding from the
Run for Women, Stella’s Circle Naomi Centre runs a preventative program called My Life My Choice that focuses on empowering vulnerable young women and ending sexual exploitation.
