In-kind Donations

Throughout the year, there are frequent opportunities for you to make a difference in the lives of the families we serve:

  • With your in-kind gifts, you provide for the immediate needs of the women and children who seek safe shelter.
  • When you host a “Safe Place Shower,” you reach out to families who are using our transitional services to build abuse-free lives.

“Shower” Safe Place

Any time of year your group or organization can host a “shower” to collect items for a specific need or holiday.

Please contact the Volunteer/Donations Coordinator before you host your shower to ensure you are working with the most current list of shelter needs.
