What is Support Survivors Summer?

We are so excited to announce SACHA's newest fundraising campaign! During the summer months we are partnering with local businesses to create unique and exciting opportunities to support the work we do with survivors through your purchases!

There are so many businesses getting involved! Whether you want to go to a restaurant, buy some tasty chocolates and baked goods, get a beautiful handmade dreamcatcher, bring home a new record, or even attend a live music show there are so many ways you can participate! We hope that everyone in Hamilton can find at least one way to support this fundraiser and the work we do at SACHA and show survivors they are not alone!

Please spread the word and use the hashtag #SupportSurvivorsSummer to learn more about all details from the participating businesses!
