“The home is actually a more dangerous place for a woman than the U.S. city streets.” – A. Novello, Surgeon General.
Many victims suffer in silence. It is a horrible and unresolved issue in our society.

The Shelter is in need of donations. You can help families in need with small contributions. It is the time for spring-cleaning. Make a donation with your unwanted items.
