The majority of individuals in a homeless shelter at any given time are women and their children. They are typically victims of domestic violence and fleeing an abusive home, looking to start over in a safe environment or are often single mothers who have lost their jobs due to unforeseen circumstances and need help to get back on their feet. Regardless of the situation that led these women to homelessness, they need support - both physical and emotional - to transition to a better life for themselves and their children. Our mission is to provide them not only with tangible items they need- but to empower them to gain independence and stability.
We collect the following items year round:
*Brand new bras (tags-on only, please).
*Unopened boxes of tampons, pads, and pantyliners for all ages and sizes.
*Unopened packages of underwear
