Donate Items

Many clients come to our shelters with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. By donating tangible items you can provide these women, children and men with the supplies they need to rebuild their lives free from abuse.

In-Kind donations refer to new items only. Please donate your gently-used items to The Family Place Resale Shop.
