We ask that you consider making a financial gift to help us sustain our supplies throughout the year and ensure that our women and children have their personal needs met while in one of our shelters or participating in our Outreach Program.

Your gift of money ensures that we can purchase what we need most when we need it, to help women and kids fleeing abusive homes. We may also be able to do more with your money by buying in bulk and using supplier discounts and incentives.
