Help us fulfill the wishes of the women and children courageously escaping domestic violence we serve this Holiday Season and throughout the year to come. Donations will also be used to purchase items on our ongoing wish list for the shelter such as: toilet paper, food, shoes for kids, medications for women and children, feminine hygiene products, school supplies, bus tickets, and essential needs products.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
West Women's and Children Shelter responds to the needs of domestic violence survivors and their children by providing emergency shelter, transitional housing, advocacy, children's services (including child-care), food services, transportation assistance, and housing support.
How will this project solve this problem?
We are working alongside survivors, participants, and volunteers to end domestic violence. Last year alone we served 200 women and children who were courageously escaping a violent situation. Your help will support the wishes and the needs of participants and the shelter at the Holidays and the upcoming year.
Potential Long Term Impact
Our work is focused on providing solutions and resources for survivors as they seek safety. The intensive support we provide children and families is our hope to ending the intergenerational cycle of domestic violence.
