Elk Island Catholic School Division partners with Catholic Social Services in support of Lurana Shelter. 


Elk Island Catholic Schools is proud to celebrate our partnership with Catholic Social Services, supporting Lurana Shelter.

Lurana Shelter is a first-stage, emergency shelter providing safe, secure refuge and emergency services such as meals, clothing, personal care items, transportation, and child support, as well as services related to advocacy and staffing for 24/7 support and security.

Child-specific programming is available to assist vulnerable children and youth as they deal with the abuse they have been exposed to. Staff at Lurana provide support, guidance and system navigation as well as specialized learning and recreational activities. 

All services  at Lurana Shelter are provided free of charge. 

The call to support Lurana Shelter has been made. Our Elk Island Catholic School family has answered the challenge of supporting and engaging in this ministry, which has served women from all of our communities, and which runs entirely on donated support.  Fundraising initiatives will be shared throughout the year.
