2017 Holiday Wish Book Campaign
As you can imagine, Christmas can be a difficult time for families in-shelter.
You can help make the season a little brighter by providing women and children with gifts for Christmas morning, and basic necessities to make their stay feel more like home all throughout the year.
Below is a description of the items that can make a difference for families staying at Rowan House. You can select where you'd like to direct your funds from the drop-down list and make your "purchase" through PayPal. Rowan House Elves will then be able to purchase items suited to the residents staying with us closer to December 25th.

Each fiscal year, Rowan House needs to raise $800,000 to deliver crisis and preventative services for women and children affected by family violence and abuse. We anticipate an expenditure of approximately 10 cents on the dollar in direct costs to raise those funds. Rowan House respects your privacy and does not sell, trade or otherwise share your information. Rowan House reserves the right to direct donations where they’re needed most within the Holiday Wish Book campaign. For more information, call 403-652-3316. Thank you for your support!
