Financial Gifts

We receive approximately 75% of our operating budget from government sources, the remainder of our annual budget comes from the generosity of donors, foundations and revenue generating initiatives. View our Financial Audited Statement 2012.

A donation to WRRC will be used to offset our costs. This could mean a safe warm place to stay, support in making a decision about a new beginning, navigating the complicated court and housing systems, and provides basic needs in a crisis.
