 Alternatives to Violence Wish ListHOW YOU CAN HELP  THE SAFEHOUSE

Imagine leaving your home quite possibly with only what you can carry with you in a bag. When we open our doors many families will do just that. A shelter like the SafeHouse provides a refuge from the abuse. Those in a shelter typically have no where else to go, some are waiting on family or friends to help them get back on their feet and may only need the shelter for a short time. Others do not have the emotional support of loved ones and require a longer stay to help them become stable enough to regroup and move forward.

The SafeHouse exists so that one who has been abused has the option to leave when they felt none existed before. With 8 bedrooms and 22 beds our needs will be great. We will provide all the basic needs that a family will need as they begin again.  Please click on the wish list to learn what we do need. Anything you can do will help. Thank you in advance for your help.
