Thank you to everyone who has donated this last spring and summer. You finished our short term goal of raising $3,000 to start an Emergency Housing Fund.
Now we’re onto the next stage of sustaining this fund long-term. An annual fund of $18,000 will assist 30 families with setting up a safe place to live. This allows them to move away from violence, begin healing, and start a new life.
Just a week and a half ago, these funds helped improve a mother’s difficult situation brought on by an abuser. These funds offer an invaluable alternative to our clients. A price cannot be put on someone’s safety.

Fundraising will continue as the dollars continue to help local families. If you’d like to give, please do. You can also make a sustaining gift to this fund, by making an automatic monthly donation, or you calling Dave, Helping Services’ Executive Director for these options:
