Wish List

GIFT CARDS ARE NEEDED MOST – When a domestic violence survivor is handed a gift card and is empowered to shop for themselves and their children, they feel a sense of ownership and pride to be able to provide for their families – Gift Cards to Safeway, Target, Macy’s, Best Buy, Amazon, Chevron, etc  – all these are welcome and needed this holiday season! Remember, some come to us with just the clothes they are wearing to escape a dangerous situation!
