This October, help keep the shelter’s doors open for survivors of domestic violence.
This is a shelter that houses 8-10 survivors of domestic violence and their children in a safe and healthy environment. We have four large bedrooms, a large family room, a warm kitchen, and a large dining area for family dinners and children’s get-togethers. We are located in a secure area of Charlotte, N.C.
In October 2020, Penny Appeal USA opened its first domestic violence shelter in North Carolina that serves as a model for future shelters. According to the CDC, 1 in 4 women suffer from intimate partner violence, and the COVID19 crisis is increasing those rates. You can help provide women and their children a safe place to lay their heads.
Please donate generously towards the following programs:
The Power to Move: $50
One of the most needed items this month are bus passes as the survivors take steps towards a powerful tomorrow.
The Power to Heal: $100
Survivors have the chance to economic independence; case workers help them find jobs, provide hygiene items, and a way to a brighter future.
The Power to be Safe: $500
Contribute towards the shelter’s monthly rent and the security system that protects the survivors and their children trying to break free from abuse.
