The areas of focus for the Avana Foundation include:
Avana’s Empowerment Housing Fund — Breaking the Cycle of Intimate Partner Violence.
Avana is passionate about supporting women and children experiencing intimate partner violence. Our affordable housing suites serve as fresh starts for families in need of attainable, safe, quality housing. The Avana Empowerment Housing Fund, guided in a strategic partnership between Avana and YWCA Regina, assists single-mother families with supplemental funding to help them rent safe, attainable housing in great neighbourhoods. Pairing quality housing and a strong support system give vulnerable families a solid foundation to stabilize, heal, and grow.
The holiday season can be a tough time of year for those facing hardships. The Help Us Help Her committee, a sub-committee of the Avana Foundation, works to bring the magic of the holiday season alive for women and children in our community. This annual initiative brings together a committee of dedicated people to facilitate fundraising and charitable giving to women and children in need. The committee has rallied community support to bring hope and joy to families who may not otherwise have the opportunity to celebrate the holidays.
We are kicking off the 3rd Annual Help Us Help Her holiday initiative, and we are looking for partners to help make this the most successful fundraising event to date! Without your generous support, many families within our community will not have the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season. Many children will not have access to warm snowsuits. Many families will not have food on the table or have the chance to experience the magic of the holidays with gifts and time spent with family. The Help Us Help Her committee has helped deliver hundreds of winter essentials like snowsuits, holiday food hampers, and gifts to schools and families of YWCA Regina and SOFIA House, and we look to do the same this year.
