We are grateful to everyone in the community that has been supporting us with in-kind donations. We encourage you to order items directly from our Amazon wishlist.

At this time, we are not accepting donations at our office or shelters. If you would like to drop off donations in-person, please bring them to our Donation Center on Thursdays between 12 and 2 pm.

Donation of children’s items

We are a women’s shelter. If you have clothing or items for children and families, please consider donating to:

Donation of furniture

Women moving into housing often need furniture and furnishings. We rely on two community partners that help with needed items. Please consider donating furniture and furnishings to either Northwest Furniture Bank or St. Vincent de Paul.

Donation of vehicles

If you have a vehicle that you no longer need, please consider donating it. We have partnered with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) to make it easy for you to donate your vehicle and support women experiencing homelessness. Donations are tax-deductible.
