West Women's and Children's Shelter Project Report

West Women
West Women's and Children's Shelter

West Women's and Children's Shelter has continued to operate our emergency shelter and transitional housing for domestic violence survivors and their families in the Portland area.  With the support of global giving donors in 2012, 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.  With your help we are getting closer to our goal of ending the cycle of domestic violence.  

Your financial contributions have been used to cover the costs of emergency shelter, child care, advocacy, prescription medication support, meals for hungry families, rental subsidies for survivors moving into their housing, educational assistance, helping to pay down past debt and reduce barriers towards long term and sustainable housing.   

The West Women's and Children's project has raised $5,106 towards our goal of $10,000 to support our ongoing support services for domestic violence survivors.  Each contribution brings us closer to our Mission of creating a safe nurturing environment for survivors to realize their potential for healing and growth as we work together to end domestic violence.  Thank you!!!
