Belinda’s Place Reaches Its 1$ Million Fundraising Goal – Newmarket

Belinda’s Place, the first and only shelter exclusively for single homeless women in York Region, which is expected to open its doors in the spring of 2015, has met its $1 million fundraising goal thanks to two final generous donations. On June 6th, a cheque presentation was held at the future site of the shelter at Yonge Street and Sawmill Valley Drive in Newmarket, gifting the shelter with $5,000 from Aurora mayor Geoff Dawe’s annual golf tournament and $7,000 from the annual Style for a Cause event hosted by the Artists Salon in Newmarket. Belinda’s Place, a uniquely and thoughtfully designed shelter, will offer 28 single-unit emergency beds and nine transitional apartments, as well as support and counselling for single homeless women.
