"The Royal LePage shelter Foundation is Canada's largest public Foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women's shelters and domestic violence prevention programs. Since the foundation's Inception 20 years ago, Royal LePage agents and Brokers continue to make generous donations from their sales commissions, and organize and attend fundraising events in support of the cause. Why? They know they're helping women and children and their own communities to safely escape domestic violence and take important steps to rebuild their lives.
For others, their reasons for giving are more personal. There are many Royal LePage agents, men and women, who have experienced domestic violence in their own lives.
Barry Clark, area manager with Royal LePage Nanaimo Realty in Nanaimo British Columbia encourages his agents to support the role of page shelter Foundation. A close family member of his was a victim of extreme violence, so he wants to help others who may be in the same situation. Barry's support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation stems from his deep conviction that there should be a safe place for Abused women and their children to go when they need help."
