Board by Board – Building a Safe Haven for Women and Children

Chilliwack, BC, April 27, 2015 --- Ann Davis Transition Society (ADTS) would like to thank and acknowledge the generosity of our community as we have successfully raised enough funds to replace our Transition House fence.

Canex Building Supplies Ltd will be supplying the fence panels, posts, hardware and cement at a generous discount. Moira Watson & D’Arcy Surrette from Pull Your Own Post Inc., along with Doug Lawrence from Applied Research Consultants, have offered their time and services to install the fence. Bio Central Composting & Waste Management Division will be taking the old fence and recycling it at no cost to ADTS. LucyAnn Carruthers owner of Panago, Sardis with her friend Connie Williams, teacher at Chilliwack Sr. Secondary, and their student team did an amazing job selling tulips to raise over $3,000 towards the new fence.

“We sincerely thank all of the donors who contributed online or came by in person to drop off cheques and offer assistance, this is truly an example of the principal that together we can,” said ADTS Executive Director, Patti MacAhonic.

ADTS serves over 2,700 families and individuals in crisis annually; almost 200 women and children pass through the Transition House doors every year. Shelley Bolan, Transition House Manager highlighted the importance a stable fence: “Providing privacy and an important sense of security, our Transition House fence allows women and children both the physical and emotional space to unwind from trauma.” 



 "Shaping the Future Together" is the theme of this year's National Victims of Crime Awareness Week (Victims Week), taking place across Canada from April 19-25, 2015. 

This year marks the 10th annual Victims Week held to raise awareness about issues facing victims of crime and the services, programs, and laws in place to help victims and their families.

“The National Victims of Crime Awareness Week is an important event for our community because violence respects no boundaries," said Ann Davis Transition Society Executive Director, Patti MacAhonic, “Our vision to see communities free from violence and abuse starts with an increased awareness of who the victims are in our community and the issues they face.” Ann Davis Transition Society provides services to over 2,700 families and individuals in crisis per year.

 “A volunteer action is like a stone thrown in a lake: its effect has a direct impact. At the same time, like ripples, volunteer efforts reach out far and wide to improve communities. Undeniably, volunteers rock. National Volunteer Week is a time to recognize, celebrate and thank Canada’s volunteers.”

When we reflect on the contributions and the subsequent impacts made by our volunteers, I am humbled and amazed every time. This year we are formally recognizing Velma Ens and Gina Moore for their outstanding commitment and positive, can do attitude. We look forward to recognizing and honouring female volunteers in our community on Friday April 17th at our 26th Annual Bread & Roses Celebration. Interested in learning how you can get involved? Join us on April 21, 2015 for a Volunteer Orientation at our Administrative office, 9046 Young Road at 2:00pm!

Thank you for caring and sharing,

Samantha Hilliard, Volunteer Coordinator
