The Natalie Novak Fund

"The Natalie Novak Fund for Education and Prevention of Relationship Violence began within months of Natalie's death in May 2006. At the family's request, in lieu of flowers, contributions to our local women's shelter, Muskoka Interval House, were encouraged and appreciated. The response from family, friends, and community was strong.

The staff and board of directors for Muskoka Interval House voted to commit the new funds to education initiatives in June 2006. The Natalie Novak Fund for Education and Prevention of Relationship Violence (NNF) was established." (Taken directly from the NNF website).
Please visit the new Natalie Novak Fund website.

Muskoka Women's Advocacy Group would like to thank our volunteers for giving so generously of their time and energy to help women and children in our communities.

If you're interested in volunteering, weekly grocery shoppers are currently needed at Muskoka Interval House (MIH) in Bracebridge, as well as childcare assistants and drivers for both MIH and Chrysalis in Huntsville. Volunteer training will be provided.

If you are able to help, please contact Ruth Holloway for details:
