Welcome to Ottawa Basketeers
After fleeing a violent situation, women and children in the National Capital Region, will often arrive at local women's shelters with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. Once they are safe from the violence, they face the prospect of starting their lives over and rebuilding a home from scratch.
Since 2009 the Ottawa Basketeers has tried to make the transition to their new beginnings a bit easier. Twice a year, and with the help and support of our Basketeers, volunteers and the community, we collect new household items to be donated to these women to start their new lives.
Although the future may be unknown, the women receiving the baskets can be assured that someone in their community cares for their well-being and is supporting them.
