This change not only affects those who have a phone number with a 415 area code and those who will receive a phone number with a 628 area code in the future; it also affects those of us who are service providers. Many of us work with marginalized communities who are accessing social services and it’s a reminder that we’ll need be mindful of the contact numbers when we’re referring folks to other services.
W.O.M.A.N., Inc. printed our first pet calendar for 2015. Made up of submissions from the community, the pet calendar was a labor of love. We appreciate all the people who shared their and their pets’ stories; they truly illustrated the bond between pets and their humans.
Beyond that, the calendar offered us an opportunity to connect with you, our community of supporters; we are so thankful for that impact.
Adopt-A-Family has been running strong for 5+ years and 2014 was no different! With the support of several generous donations from individuals and local businesses, the Adopt-A-Family program was able to raise $1,605 for survivors of domestic violence and their families!
We always encourage our donors to donate gift cards so that survivors can feel empowered by picking out a gift for themselves or for their children. This year we received several gift cards of various forms… from grocery stores, to movie theaters, to Target and other department stores. These donations were divided up to the participants of W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s Therapy Program and Latina Program. A Latina Program participant had this to say about the Adopt-A-Family program: “In my opinion I think the Adopt-A-Family program is marvelous!! It was a huge help for me and my daughter during the holidays. My daughter received an art kit, along with some gift cards, and she just loved it! I’m very grateful for all the help provided during the holidays. Thank you so much.”
W.O.M.A.N., Inc. would like to thank everyone that donated to the Adopt-A-Family program. Because of your generous donations you were able to bring some holiday joy and many smiles to survivors of domestic violence and their families. Without your support, the Adopt-A-Family program would not be possible. Thank you!
