Finally, we are asking for donations of used cellphones for community clients accessing support groups, and our crisis line who do not have access to a safe device.

Due to the nature of the COVID-19 Virus we are not accepting soft items that are fabric based at this time. Items such as clothing, towels, bedding or sheets, etc., we appreciate our community members generosity but for the time being please hold onto fabric-based items you wish to donate. We are still trying to limit access for community members to the shelter for the safety of everyone, in addition all items donated will have to sit in isolation for a period of days and will be cleaned and sanitized before distribution. At this time, we would like to ask our community to contact us prior to donating to arrange a time to support your donation. Please contact us at or by phone at 780-296-5403.
