Crisis & Shelter
For victims of domestic violence, maintaining normal routines and traditions in times of crisis is important in nurturing the resilience and healing for their families. Many of our clients struggle to make ends meet day-to-day, but the struggle is especially difficult during the holiday season.
In effort to provide that extra special assistance to our clients, every year DVS coordinates the sponsorship of families for Christmas. Sponsors provide the family with, at minimum, gifts for each family member but may also provide food, decorations and meet other needs.
