There are a few ways to support families in crisis this holiday season:


  • Donate food to a family overcoming violence this Thanksgiving! Requested donations include ingredients for families to make their own meal – i.e. turkey, gravy, stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes, pie, etc.


  • Become Santa’s helper and purchase gifts for a family in our emergency shelter! Visit our Amazon Wishlist to view a list of popular items requested by the children and a few suggestions for mom too.
  • Make the holidays merry for our housing families, who have left emergency shelter and moved to safe homes free from violence! You will be matched with a family and receive information about their age, gender, sizing and interests.
