Dream Builder Society

Since 1977, we have grown from a small eight-bed volunteer-run shelter to a multi-site provider of free compassionate, confidential, and client-centered programs. Today, Gillian’s Place helps empower thousands of survivors every year to break the cycle of violence and abuse.

While it is heartbreaking that this growth has been needed to support survivors in our community, the programs and services we provide would not be possible without significant individual and corporate gifts.

Gillian’s Place simply does not receive enough ministry funding to sustain our priority life-changing, and often life-saving programs. We are often asked what our biggest need is. Simply put, we need stable funding to ensure we are providing effective intervention and preventative gender-based violence work.

That is why we developed the Dream Builder Society. Our Dream Builder Society is geared towards individuals, organizations, or foundations who are looking to make a significant impact through a one-time or multi-year major gift.
