It's Simply Horrifying
Every week, a family in Manitoba has their world shattered because
they’ve lost someone they love to criminal violence.
With murder rates rapidly rising in our community, more families need your help to ensure Candace House can give them the caring support they need.
Download our Case for Support to learn more about our expansion
and how you can create heart and healing space for victims, survivors, and families.
Candace House only has enough space to host one or two families at a time, but there are often four or more families seeking help.
This expanded need means that right now, people are regularly being turned away when seeking the refuge and supports they need.
The planned $1 million expansion project will allow Candace House to take over and fit out an adjacent space in the same building, doubling capacity to accommodate families who urgently need refuge and supports.
"Candace House gave me a place to put myself back together that felt loving and peaceful..."
