We are looking forward to opening our doors to more women in our own community. We need your help to make this possible. Click here for the SCCSS letter that outlines how you may donate to this program and receive a charitable tax receipt for doing so. The cost per guest for two nights of accommodation, healthy meals, workshops and yoga is $300. Any amount you are able to give is appreciated.
Linwood House has a long history of being a special place of healing and transformation for women. Well over 1000 women have been given the opportunity to spend a retreat away from the daily chaos of life. Many have come with stories of addiction, child abuse and violence and left with tools for empowerment and transformative change.
A portion of all proceeds go to supporting women in transition.
