In-Kind Donations

All too often, domestic violence survivors escape an abusive household with little more than the clothes on their backs. They are hungry; they are tired; they need basic supplies for themselves and their children. You can help us meet these needs by donating items from our Wish List below.

Wish List

The items listed below are ongoing needs for our clients. Please check out our Amazon wish list for our most urgent needs this season!
