The Holiday Season is a special and exciting time. However, for battered women, their dependent children, and victims of sexual assault it can be a source of great pain. If you are interested in providing Christmas to a woman, child, or family affected by domestic/sexual violence, please fill out this holiday sponsor form.
Our Christmas Gift Store is available to our shelter residents as well as those clients we have served within the past year. Each client must fill out an application and once approved will be able to shop and wrap gifts they choose for their children. These parents will be required to invest $5 per child or $20 per family. Those parents who cannot afford to pay the required amount will be given a voucher to shop for gifts. We are asking our sponsors to purchase new items for children ages 0-18, adult women, and/or household supplies. This gift store has allowed our clients the opportunity to be involved in the gift selection process for their children, as well as, provided them with the knowledge that they are not alone. Our little ones also have the opportunity to shop for their mothers in a separate gift store.
In 2017, SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition was able to provide gifts to 182 adults and children that have been impacted by violence. The sponsors who made this effort possible all came from our local community. We appreciate all that YOU did to make this program possible and look forward to working with YOU again this year.
