DVACK provides more than crisis intervention and direct support services to victims and their families. Thanks to contributions from people like you we are able to provide individuals and families with the items necessary to provide for their health, safety and needs to move on to a violence free life.
The following items are greatly appreciated and are routinely used and needed by shelter residents and families within our community. Thanks to contributions from you and others in our community DVACK is able to provide for individuals and families transitioning out of shelter and moving into their new home and violence free life. As well as clients who are still taking the steps toward safety and self-sufficiency and needing a hand-up not a hand-out. Items as simple as trash bags, cleaning supplies, medicine, hangers, etc. provide our clients the comfort in knowing that they can provide for their family – diminishing yet another common reason victims are drawn back to an abuser.
