Asian Women’s Home is Expanding and We Need Your Help!
December 15, 2014
Asian Women’s Home is expanding to meet the growing needs of our clients. Many clients come into the shelter with nothing but the clothes on the back and are given food, clothing, shelter, and other basic living necessities. In addition, Asian Women’s Home began providing mental health services in the shelter as many of the women did not have the means to access these services. The shelter provided other services such as access to a computer in order to job search as well as childcare, since 40 percent of clients that come into the home are children.
Currently, the shelter only has one room that serves as playroom, counseling room, and computer room. Group activities and sessions have had to convene in the dining area, which interferes with clients wanting to cook in the kitchen or spend time relaxing in the living room.
We need your help in raising funds to expand the shelter and continue to provide quality services to our clients. With your gift, we will be able to:
- Renovate our children’s playroom to create a more comfortable space for our youngest residents.
- Expand the communal kitchen and living areas to better accommodate the approximately 100 women and children that stay at our shelter every year.
- Add a brand new multipurpose room so families have more privacy for 1:1 counseling and more space for group activities.
Please consider a gift today to help the families served by our shelter. With your support, we will be one step closer to ensuring that everyone has a safe place to call home.
