Want to help?

If you are concerned about domestic violence, but don’t know what you can do to help- there is an easy solution. Call your local domestic violence agency and ask.

A shelter has many needs. Money is always a need of course. But other things they may be in need of are cell phones, food and kitchen items, household supplies, furniture, bedding, clothing, toiletries,books and toys and other entertainment needs. Some use volunteers for various things. Sometimes the domestic violence agencies need volunteers, sometimes they need help in transporting supplies and other items. If you own a business, you may be able to offer employment to the victims. Or your business may offer some services that would be helpful to the shelter. Another item that is often needed is vehicles. And because the shelters and agencies are non-profit, the donations are tax deductible, so they also benefit you.

To find out what your local domestic violence agencies need, call and ask.

    You’re welcome Soobs. I hope that people will consider giving some help. People who are undergoing a domestic violence crisis, need help immediately. And people who decide to leave an abusive spouse will be more likely to succeed if they do get some help starting out. Very often, once they get on their feet again, they are self sufficient.
