Thank you!  As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generous contributions from the community to support our shelter and outreach programs.

As a reminder, we cannot accept used clothing. However; we have a special collaboration with Goodwill Industries, St. Vincent DePaul and the Community Clothes Closet, when you donate on behalf of Christine Ann our clients are able to shop at their stores for the items they need.

Our Top Needs (in bold):

Updated as of Feb. 1, 2017

  • Grocery or Walmart gift cards Many clients do not qualify for financial assistance (on paper) yet because their abuser controlled the money they cannot afford to buy prescriptions or groceries. (Our families prepare and provide their own food which can sometimes be financially challenging)
  • Or items from our grocery List:
    • Mac-N-Cheese
    • Boxed stuffing
    • Boxed potatoes
    • Hanburger Helper
    • SpaghettiO's, Ravioli
    • Canned Fruit
    • Cereal
    • Oatmeal
    • Applesauce
    • Sloppy Joe Sauce
    • Spaghetti Noddles
    • Jelly
    • Sugar
    • Cooking oil spray
    • Pancake syrup
    • Canned chicken
    • Frozen meats
  • Baby monitors so mom’s can leave the room when their little ones are napping.
  • Gas cards, often times the abuser will cut off all access to finances as a means of control. 
  • Towels –all sized bath towels

  • Dish soap, cleaning supplies

  • Art supplies for adults (such as Mandala Coloring books) and kids. In an abusive home everyone is so focused on the abuser’s needs that many times moms and kids haven’t had quality bonding time, our family dynamics program give mom’s time to reconnect with their children. We find that through art children open up and are able to start to cope with what they’ve been going through.
  • Size 6 diapers (at this time we only need size 6)
  • Boom box or wireless speaker (for use with our children's programs, music helps relax the mood!)
  • Britta, Pure... or a 5 gallon stand alone water cooler (the one you thought you would use but never do)
  • New TWIN matteress (so kids have a warm bed as our families are transitioning out on their own)
