Women In Distress
On average, it costs $669 per household just for clothing and required supplies. Due to COVID, we don’t know what the school year will look like.
More than half of the individuals served by Women In Distress are children and are in desperate need of additional tools during the COVID19 pandemic to give them a bright future. Your donation will help provide therapy, counseling, advocacy, school supplies, suitable clothing and most of all the reassurance that even today, a fresh start can lead to success for the children of domestic violence survivors. Help our kids have a great school year no matter where it occurs.
