About Yellow Brick House:
Founded in 1978, Yellow Brick House (YBH) provides services in York Region to women and children who have experienced violence and abuse. YBH provides four core services: emergency shelter, transitional housing, outreach services and public education. The two emergency shelters offer safe places for women and children fleeing from abusive situations. The shelters, combined, have 37 beds and 10 cribs. Reta's Place, a transitional housing facility, provides housing units to women and children transitioning from the emergency shelter to living independently.
Outreach services offer an array of programs to women and their children in various stages of their abusive situation. The Violence Prevention and Public Education Program raises awareness of the prevalence and devastating effects of domestic violence, and reinforces YBH's community presence so that those affected know where to turn for help. Services are available in 27 languages, are free of charge and fully confidential. In F2012, 5,500 women and children received support through Yellow Brick House programs, a 10% increase from the prior year.
Administrative costs are 3% of revenues and fundraising costs are 14% of donations. YBH has funding reserves of $1.5m, which cover 57% of annual program costs.
