Mother's Day

Make a difference this Mother's Day!  Honor and celebrate a special woman in your life by providing a night of safety to a woman in crisis.

Mother's Day

Each year, the Shelter for Help in Emergency provides support services to over 400 women and children through our residential and outreach programs!

Help change someone's life this Mother's Day by giving the gift of safety, time, and peace of mind to a mom and her children fleeing their abusive home!

A donation of $45 to the Shelter for Help in Emergency provides one night of safe housing, counseling, and an opportunity to regain the strength and confidence needed on their journey ahead. For each night of safety provided, the Shelter will send a personalized card to the women in your life you choose to honor this Mother's Day.

Win Dinner for Two from Broadcloth and a Wine from The Wool Factory
For every $45 donation you make, we’ll enter your name in a raffle for dinner for two at Broadcloath and a bottle of Blanc de Blanc wine from The Wool Factory. The gift certificates are valid through March 2022. Winners will be contacted May 7th.
