Donations needed for furnishings and maintenance at our emergency shelter

Can you help us make our goal of $2,500 to purchase much-needed furnishings and maintenance at our Downers Grove shelter before the end of our fiscal year on June 30, 2013?

Our Downers Grove facility is our largest shelter and the first point-of-entry for numerous adults and children in our community who are leaving almost unspeakable situations. There they find not only shelter, but the services of our trauma-informed counseling staff and the comfort of a safe place to live.

Depending on their needs, we have helped these families find refuge through our shelters, the resources and solace they need for a safer more peaceful life through our counselors, and the protections of law enforcement and the judicial system through our court advocates at the DuPage County courthouse.

Remember, when you make a donation to Family Shelter Service, you are offering a helping hand to someone who is living in constant fear, to mothers and children with nowhere to turn, to people who are being stalked and harassed, to an individual who just wants a chance to live a peaceable life.

Donate today and help us make our $2,500 goal by June 30, 2013.
