We are raising money to help purchase holiday gifts for guests at the Finex House. The Finex House is an emergency shelter for women and children, who are disabled as a result of their abuse, and have fled their abuser.
We have close to 50 women and children as our guests this holiday season. The majority of them are utilizing our emergency shelter program where we provide shelter and an array of services for up to a year as they seek to reestablish employment, enroll in school, etc. For those who have developed severe disabilities as a result of their abuse, we also offer a housing stabilization program, which provides continued housing support and services for the families once they leave the four walls of our shelter.
We are reaching out now to ask for your support and a donation, of any size, to support a gift drive for the mothers and children this holiday season. We have polled all families across the two programs and asked that they share the items on their holiday wish list. Most of the requests are for bedding, diapers, clothing, winter coats, school supplies etc, as well as learning and developmental toys for the younger children. These donations collected here will be used to purchase the items on their wish list.
Thank you for considering us, as I know there are many important charities competing for your attention.
