About Our Relationship With The Halifax YWCA:

The YWCA is for, by and about women & girls. Since 1874 they have made it possible for women & children to escape homelessness, violence, and instability and move towards a brighter future. At PAVIA, we believe we have a social responsibility to leverage our success and act as a conduit for good. We feel so fortunate to have such wonderful locations in Halifax.  Part of our commitment to our community is to leverage our opportunity to raise money for people in the community who need help. Specifically, we have committed to maintain our strong relationship with the Halifax YWCA. Our goal is to raise $24,000 annually (at a minimum) which, over the time of our leases in Halifax amounts to at least well over $400,000.
