This Mother's Day thank her for her unwavering support by passing it on!

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

YOU can help us make an impact 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 security and refuge, a night of restful sleep without abuse, 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.

Honor your mother or another special woman on Mother's Day and help break the cycle of domestic violence.

I would like to make on online gift of a night of safety for Mother's Day!
