Thank You

For helping us to help others. Abuse happens to women from all walks of life, and it is everyone’s concern. With your generous support, you are shining a light on this important issue and helping to end the cycle of violence against women – a cause that you can really feel good about.

Here at Iris Kirby House, we will continue to:

  • Raise public awareness
  • Strongly advocate for the victim
  • Work in partnership with other community agencies
  • Provide safe shelter

The community is very supportive of the work we do. We have come to rely on this community support to assist us in offering invaluable programs and services to the women and children that need our help. Without your support, most of the work we do would never be possible.
