Starter Kit Program

You can help a woman transitioning out of the shelter and moving into her own apartment by contributing to a Starter Kit. Each kit contains the basics that a woman needs when setting up a new home. These kits transform four walls and a roof into a cozy and peaceful home. It’s especially important that all items in a Starter Kit be unused – for women who have endured so much, new houseware means a great deal.

 A Starter Kit usually includes:

  • Kitchen Supplies: Pots and pans, frying pans, dish soap, and pot scrubbers

  • Bedding: Duvets and sheets

  • Cleaning supplies: Mop, broom, dust pan, and toilet brush

  • Hygiene products: Toilet paper and hand soap

  • First aid: Band aid and antibiotic cream


Food Donations

Donations of food help us to stretch our budget and provide more women with the support they need. We accept the following items:

  • Coffee
  • Tea

  • Sugar

  • Flour

  • Salt and pepper

  • Pasta

  • Tomato Sauce

  • Canned Goods

  • Peanut Butter

  • Rice

  • Bread

  • Dairy Products (milk, cheese, yogurt)
