Yesterday, Big Hill Haven officially received a major grant from the Government of Alberta. Airdrie-Cochrane MLA Peter Guthrie was on hand to meet with the Fund Development Officer of Big Hill Haven, Tara McFadden and a few members of the board to pass off the big cheque!
Airdrie-Cochrane MLA Peter Guthrie supported the grant and has been a huge supporter of Big Hill Haven over the years,
“I am pleased that Big Hill Haven’s CIP grant has been approved for $75,000. Big Hill Haven has been integral in enhancing the quality of life for vulnerable women and children experiencing domestic violence through access to economic and social resources. The funding provided by the Government of Alberta will contribute to Big Hill Haven’s ongoing efforts to provide essential services for women and children impacted by domestic abuse. I am happy to support Big Hill Haven and I applaud the efforts of this wonderful organization.”
The demand for Big Hill Haven’s services continue to grow in the Cochrane area, with more nights of shelter being requested than ever. The Community Initiatives Program (CIP) Operating Grant of $75,000 will support Big Hill Haven’s operational costs. This program provides funding for organizations that create opportunities for Albertans to engage with and help develop their communities.
