Brandon Area REALTORS® Shelter Invitational Golf Tournament

Since 2014, the MREA Shelter Foundation has been the fortunate recipient of funds raised through the Brandon Area REALTORS® Shelter Invitational Golf Classic.  Many Brandon REALTORS®, associates, and sponsors joined together this year at the Wheat City Golf Course for a day of fun in the sun, raising $9,000 for the foundation.
 
To date, Brandon Area REALTORS® has generously donated a total of $23,500 to the MREA Shelter Foundation, and are seeing the fruits of their good works at shelter-related organizations in their own Brandon community.
 
Samaritan House Ministries, located in Brandon, MB, has received grants for two important initiatives:  Mary’s House; and the Safe and Warm Shelter.
 
Mary’s House provides four second-stage safe housing units for women and their children who have been victims of domestic violence. This provides an opportunity to women who need time beyond their stay in transition houses to make plans to live independently.  Mary’s House employs a women’s counselor and a children’s counselor who work with families while they are in residence.  
 
The Safe & Warm Shelter is a 10-bed emergency shelter designated for adults who experience occasional homelessness.  The shelter is fully staffed with trained support workers and security guards who ensure safety and assistance for clients.  From November 2015 to March 2016, 61 homeless men and women stayed for a total of 457 safe and warm nights.  By March 2016, 7 people transitioned from the shelter into their own home.
