"Thanks for a safe place" -Shirley

Updated: Oct 29, 2020

"Thanks for a safe place.

I would like to send a heartfelt thank you to Candace House. We attended a trial at law courts in Winnipeg in December 2018, and during this time we were greeted every day with a smile and warm welcoming by Cecilly and made to feel at home every time we entered Candace House.

We so appreciate having a relaxing place to go while we attended court each day.

We were so relieved we did not have to go sit in a public place and were able to rest in a home-like setting and deal with our emotions in private with the support from Cecilly and Candace House.

We would like to send a heartfelt thank you to Wilma and Cliff for providing a safe haven for families in their time of need. Thank you so very much."
