The key to our overall success is a strong connection with the local community. Your support and participation are vital to help the SHCC continue providing services to women and children whose lives have been affected by family violence. There are many ways you can help:
- VOLUNTEER: We have a committed group of volunteers and wouldn't want to imagine working without them, but we need more! We want to train and support an active, energetic and committed volunteer base. Will you consider becoming a SHCC volunteer? Answering phones, assisting with childcare, sorting and organizing donated items are just a few of the important tasks where help is needed; see Volunteer Opportunities for more information.
- MAKE A FINANCIAL GIFT: The Shelter Home of Caldwell County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that needs dedicated financial partners. While a portion of our budget comes from grants, we rely heavily on gifts from individual donors. All donations are 100% tax deductible and every dollar makes a difference. Will you consider donating to SHCC today? Donate here.
- DONATE ITEMS: Many SHCC residents arrive with nothing but the clothes they are wearing, so there's always an immediate need for clothing and toiletry items. Helping residents begin a new life is also a part of our mission, so donations of household items like dishes, appliances and furniture are also needed.
