Save Our Outreach Programs of Canada: Stop The Budget Cuts on Outreach Program in Canada

The drastic cuts will impact the lives of millions of Canadians. The proposed budget cut will be crippling to organisations such as The redwood, an organization dedicated to reaching out to women and children suffering from domestic violence. Almost 200,000 Canadians rely reach out services such as Redwood's start up program each year. Approximately 37,500 of these are from Toronto. Redwood is just one of the many women's shelters - this is a clear indicator that there is a great need for such shelters/out reach centres in our country. Please stop the cuts in our social safety net. We can't afford to lose  more.
