DVSAS - Emergency Shelter Supply Drive
Who are we serving?
Individuals who have experienced sexual assault or domestic violence, whether physical, emotional, psychological or sexual. The shelter also serves children who have been affected directly or as part of their family situation. DVSAS serves over 3,000 individuals each year with care, advocacy and shelter.
Who is helping connect us to their needs?
Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services is a county-wide, volunteer based organization that serves individuals of all ages affected by domestic violence and sexual assault. The agency provides client-centered, accessible services which promote empowerment, choice and safety. The organization is committed to the provision of a full spectrum of victim services in the community, including crisis intervention, shelter, medical and legal advocacy, support services and prevention, education and offenders treatment. The Safe Shelter provides confidential, emergency shelter support for women and their children who are victims of domestic abuse. At times, survivors come with nothing but what they are wearing; others with what they could hastily pack.
How are we serving?
Provide basic supplies for women and children staying at the safe house. You can pool money as a group to purchase items or actually collect donations from a broader network of people. For a list of needed supplies click here
