Monica Ercolessi is the Director of Resource Development at Sonshine Community Services.  Sonshine Community Services is a non-for-profit social service agency that exists to help women and children fleeing from domestic violence transform their lives. Their vision is a community where women and children live safely in healthy families. Sonshine operates an 18 month residential shelter that each year becomes home to approximately 40 families, the majority of whom are considered at high risk for fatality or serious injury due to domestic violence. Sonshine is invested in children: since 2015, we have operated the Children’s Centre where children impacted by trauma can find the therapeutic and specialized support they need to heal. 
Rotary members and guests are welcome to join us on Wednesday October 11th to hear more about how Sunshine Community Service is making a difference.
