Support women & children

in Perth County

Under normal circumstances, it’s difficult for women in abusive relationships to confidentially reach out for help, but the pandemic-related circumstances have made it even harder.

Every dollar donated to Optimism Place helps us support women and children fleeing abuse in these uncertain and difficult times. If you can, consider supporting us with a financial donation. Community support makes all the difference. 


Optimism Place Women’s Shelter and Support Services supports women alone or with children to live free of abuse by providing shelter and confidential, nonjudgmental service. We are committed to ending the cycle of abuse and violence by raising awareness through prevention, intervention and education and advocacy.
