Happy Mother's Day!

There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.

—Jill Churchill

Over two thirds of the women who seek support and safety in the Sonshine Centre do not walk through our doors alone: they are mothers. Motherhood can simultaneously be one of life's most challenging trials and most rewarding gifts.

When you tack on additional challenges such as guardianship and custody matters all while exiting an abusive situation, you can imagine the immense strength and fortitude it would take to make that first move to leave.

At Sonshine, we dream of the day we work ourselves out of a job, but for now, we are grateful and humbled to provide holistic care for these fierce mothers and their children - and we wish them a very Happy Mother's Day indeed.

Sonshine is thrilled to be a participating charity once again with Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink. When you donate to Sonshine through Birdies for Kids until August 31, 2022, your donation will be matched up to 50%!
