Financial donations are VITAL to funding our services for victims of domestic violence and their families. Each year, we must raise about one-quarter of our budget from individuals and donor groups. Simply put, our work is not possible without YOUR support.

Donate Goods


Because our storage space is limited, there are times during the year when we must limit the quantity of donations we can accept. Our greatest need is for NEW items.   We appreciate your understanding and will happily refer you to another organization if we are unable to accept your donation.


Please contact Gabrielle Nadeau (860) 225-5187 ext. 23 in advance to discuss your in-kind donation, determine if there is a need, and make arrangements for drop-off.


Many of the people in our program leave their personal belongings behind or take only essential items when they flee unsafe environments. In-kind gifts give us the ability to provide them with the items they could not bring with them. Below to is our current “wish list”.
