  5. 5. Privacy

    Westminster House Society does not sell, rent or exchange any personal information collected from our supporters with any other organization or entity.


Over the past three decades, Westminster House has learned to appreciate the history of crises that have propelled change to meet the needs of women who struggle with addiction. We face two crises, the Opioid overdose crisis and now a COVID-19 global pandemic. Social distancing measures have increased the threat to the lives of addicts. Westminster House has responded by changing the delivery of the recovery program and restructuring to reflect the new normal. Zoom Rooms were installed, as well as computer labs and web-based client services.

Unfortunately, our funds for aftercare have diminished! We need the support of our community to help women to complete the continuum of care. Please support us by purchasing a raffle ticket. AND 95% of all proceeds will go DIRECTLY to the programs.
