Your donations provide supplies, clothes, shoes for local students

Your donation provides students clothes and supplies.

Making the move to shelter can be scary and overwhelming for children. Often, it involves a change of schools. Every year at this time we have between 15-20 children in shelter at the beginning of school. Children who are trying to cope with major changes and the stress of a new school. You can make this possible.

Some of our children are not in shelter, but starting new homes in the community, with all the change and stress which comes with that situation. They, too, face the uncertainty of a new school, of fitting in and being accepted. They too need support. Support you can provide.

These brave kids have vastly different needs. But they all want to start the school year with the same things every student hopes to have--school supplies, clean, fresh clothes, a pair of sneakers, a backpack of their own. Your donation allows us to meet these needs.

Often, their parents, survivors, are recovering from the trauma of domestic violence and human trafficking and overwhelmed trying to set up new homes, get new jobs, make a change. Your help allows them concentrate on their journey, while at the same time providing much needed school items for their students.

Your generous donation helps us reach our goal of $2,000 to provide our community's children with the clothes they need to start school with confidence. Our goal is to be able to buy supplies and one week's worth of clothes for every child in shelter for the beginning of school so that they don't have to start the school year with worn, second-hand clothes.

Your donation changes lives. Survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking often have so many challenges to overcome, that to help alleviate the stress of the beginning of the school year is a gift you can give both to the survivor and to the student.
