Donate to help us deliver 25 new homes for women over the next three years

A secure roof overhead is something most of us take for granted. But for the thousands of women and children experiencing housing crisis, a secure home would be a dream come true.

WPI has a goal to deliver 25 new homes by 2025. We are excited to have secured the first nine of these on which construction will begin in 2023, but we still have a long way to go.

Will you help us to provide vital housing as soon as possible for women and children at risk of homelessness. Your donation will change the lives of women like our tenant, Renee, who along with her six children, lived in limbo for almost eight years. After applying for more than 80 houses, they became homeless and lived with her parents for a while (part of the time pitching a tent in the back yard). When they were offered transitional housing, it was a huge relief, but with three bedrooms for seven of them, life was very difficult. Four of Renee’s children, whose ages range from 10 – 20, have special needs. Renee slept on the couch so that each of the children had their own bed, and that was the situation for three years.

Living in a WPI home has completely transformed the lives of Renee and her children. “Life is so much calmer and I feel a sense of peace. This home is so much bigger and has space for all of us. The kids feel settled and I have transitioned the younger ones to homes schooling because they were having a very hard time at school. Now they are thriving and much less anxious. I am so grateful just to know I don’t have to worry about where we are going to live or having to move. We wake up in a beautiful house and we feel safe.”

WPI homes help to break the the cycle of disadvantage. Please consider a donation to help us reach our goal of delivering 25 more homes for families like Renee’s by 2025.
