Shelter Tour 2012

On Wednesday, July 18, Family Shelter Service held a behind-the-scenes shelter tour at its Downers Grove facility. More than 60 guests attended the tour, which was accompanied by a taped presentation of our client Rachel’s story in her own words . The Family Shelter Service Story Project was on display as well, featuring stories of struggle and resilience and written by those impacted by domestic abuse. Attendees enjoyed finger food and wine and the company of other guests while they read these moving stories.

Thank you to everyone who attended this special event,  as well as our volunteers and those vendors who generously discounted their products and services: La Petite Sweet, Westmont, for their scrumptious cookies, brownies, eclairs and other goodies; and Tree Towns, Elmhurst, for our beautiful Story Project displays.
