Here is a collection of lovely words left for us by previous interns, donors and clients:
Hi, my name is Annabelle and I am 12 years old. I recently won a contest with Never Apart Montreal and The Wiggle Festival and decided to donate some of the prize to your organization to help Montreal women and their families. Have a great day!– Annabelle, our youngest donor!
Grand-mother, aunties, sisters and cousins – these strong, black women in my family have given me so much and influenced the person I am today. May this donation bring some comfort to the incredible women and their families that you help.

I am a daughter of greek immigrants, and although I am not black, I married a black man and I have 3 biracial children. I eventually became a low income single mother and raised my kids on my own with no financial help. I grew up in Park Ex. It was a great place to grow up, with every ethnicity you can imagine; I loved it. I can never fully comprehend how systematic racism affects people of colour as I am white, but I fully stand with the black community and want to help in the small way that I can by funding your organization, because you help immigrant women of colour. Thank you for what you do and I wish you continued success.
“I appreciate the work you are doing & see it’s vital importance in community.
– Moe Clark, donor
Congratulations to the AAF team, who make a real difference in our community. As a volunteer, I have had the chance to get to know this wonderful team and to make new connections with my neighbours, the residents of Parc-Extension.
