Nowhere to Call HOME
Join us as we welcome Atiya Siddiquei as our guest speaker. Atiya is manager of the Muslim Welfare Home, the sole shelter for women and children experiencing homelessness in Durham Region. Manager of the shelter for the last 15 years, Atiya has been a witness to the changes in the socio-economic culture that have led to a housing crisis in this province and the greater country. Homelessness is a community concern and there are resources in the community available that can alleviate this condition for many individuals and families.
Atiya will be discussing how the lack of affordable housing impacts vulnerable women and children.
We will be making a cheque presentation at our November meeting to Courage for Freedom, one of our fundraising recipients of our Every30Seconds event.
We invite you to engage and share your ideas, knowledge and talents with BPW Durham!
Date: Wednesday, November 27, 2019
Time: 6PM – 8:30PM
Location: Three Steps Up Coffee House
