Why Give?

Investing in Long-Term Safety and Stability

Your support not only makes it possible to help women, men and children escape the traumatic experiences of homelessness, domestic violence and sexual assault. It does so much more: it lets us invest in the long-term safety and stability of those we serve with therapies, resources and skills that transform lives. It takes women, men and children beyond shelter and into brighter futures with counseling, financial education, legal advocacy, employment assistance, children’s mental healthcare and more.

  • Fast and safe response
  • Safe havens
  • Supportive services
  • Partnership and advocacy
