Dear Friend of the West,
Please accept our genuine appreciation for your financial support over this past holiday season. GlobalGiving donors provided $910 towards granting the Holiday Wishes of our residents past and present.
In 2011, we answered 5,316 crisis calls, provided emergency shelter to 154 women and children, stabilized 67 women and children within our two year transitional housing program, and utilized over 4,856 volunteer hours to accomplish our work. None of this would have been possible without your partnership.
Over the holiday season, we were able to extend our assistance to more survivors than ever before. Over 200 women and children were provided with holiday assistance. This was only possible due to the generosity, kindness, and volunteerism we continue to be so fortunate to receive here at the West. The greatest gift survivors, staff, and volunteers received this year was hope. Hope that we are not alone in our mission to end domestic violence. Hope that some cares about our struggles. And, hope that people are genuinely kind and giving and want to help others. Each year, I am personally so thankful for these gifts I receive from you, our generous donors.
“Thank you for the gifts that made this Holiday one of my favorites. Our Christmas was calm and peaceful. Thank you for everything you have done to help my family.”
