Make it monthly 

Sustaining gifts – in any amount – help us continue our work offering free, life-saving services to those who have been impacted by domestic violence.

Single donations

We accept donations online via credit card, in the mail via check or over the phone.

Donate in honor or memory of a loved one

Celebrate a loved one – or remember someone you miss – by giving a gift in their honor. Simply visit our donate page and check the appropriate box.

Dedicate your event

Birthdays, bridal showers and barbecues – oh my! Ask guests to donate in lieu of gifts or host an event to help teach your community about what we do. Contact Jess if you need brochures or to collaborate with us to create custom signs!


Contributions are tax deductible.


In-Kind donations

In addition to financial support, we also are often in need of “stuff.” We help about 4,000 individuals each year with services, support and items they need to create and maintain a safe home. Be sure to check out our current needs list for items we’re always able to accept.

Please see our donations policy for details

Amazon Wishlist

Our most urgent needs are updated on our Amazon Wish List (and our social media channels, of course). Ship items directly to our administrative offices - and let us know so we can thank you! You can also select us as your organization of choice on smile.amazon.com and a portion of your purchase will benefit us.

Donate a Meal

Help survivors nourish their bodies and minds by donating meals to our shelter residents. Sign up here. 

Cell phones

Drop off your old cell phones – we’ll wipe them clean and give them out as an emergency contact line between survivors and 911. Phone is dead? No problem! We recycle unusable phones, the proceeds of which support our services.


Drop off Current Needs List items only Monday - Friday 

9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

294 N Winooski Ave Suite 214A
