Why Give to Westminster House:
Westminster House is a non profit society that provides addiction recovery services to adult women. We are a small organization and that means 95% of your donation goes directly to fund the initiative that you choose. We rely solely on gifts and donations to provide funding for our OnGoing Recovery aftercare programs that are free for all alumni of our program and their families. Westminster House is a public and private centre and our goal is to continue to provide world class treatment at a cost that is affordable to most families who don’t qualify for a funded bed at Westminster House.
