We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well during these turbulent times. We all feel the shock – unfortunately, some more than others. Brookview families disproportionately experience socio-economic challenges – homelessness, violence, unemployment, health disparities, and structural racism. When you layer in the distress and suffering associated with COVID-19, their trauma, fear, anxiety, and depression is amplified.
Growing numbers of women and children in our community are looking to Brookview for support. Our goal is to meet their needs during this crisis. As a donor, you will make it possible for families to persevere.

“Brookview helped me learn to communicate in English, recognized and nurtured my love of art. At first, I didn’t know how to speak English, and it was a big obstacle at school and in the community, so I needed to attend bilingual classes for two years. Now I go to regular classes; I have learned how to communicate in English very well. I joined the Teen Visionaries where I learned about domestic violence and tried photography for the first time. I also attended sculpture classes on Saturday mornings.” –Tania
