Avalon Women’s Centre White Rock gets a makeover!

Thanks to the generosity of the White Rock Community, donors and hardworking volunteers, our Avalon Women’s Centre in White Rock has a fresh new look.

Earlier this year, work began to help transform Avalon Women’s Centre White Rock to reflect the warm, welcoming, and wonderful Centre it is. Led by interior designer Tara Trompetter of Trompetter and Associates, this volunteer-run project has given the Centre a brand new look and feel, one that truly reflects our wonderful community and the warmth women find within our walls.

The team worked tirelessly to secure product donations from local businesses and financial contributions to support the project. As COVID-19 hit, they continued their efforts, working around the clock to paint and redesign the interior space.

“We are so grateful for the incredible work from our team of volunteers and support from donors and businesses in our community,” said Leanne Utendale, Centre Manager at Avalon Women’s Centre White Rock.

“This change has been transformational, and we know it will make the Centre more inviting and functional for women seeking Avalon’s vital recovery support and services.”
