W.O.M.A.N., Inc. helps to empower survivors of domestic violence AND YOU CAN HELP.
We help empower survivors so they know that they are entitled to a peaceful home and a romantic partnership that is mutually fulfilling, loving and non-violent. Please see our website for more information on our programs, and how they help survivors!
There are many brave survivors of domestic violence who do leave their abusive relationships. Sadly, their troubles don’t always end there. Some of them need help finding safe haven outside of the city. Some need help providing for themselves and their children. Some need emotional support just to get through the night. If you have the ability to donate any of the following items, it would help the survivors we serve to move on in building a lasting safe haven, free from intimate partner abuse.
These items can help W.O.M.A.N., Inc. support survivors of domestic violence in a holistic and relevant manner:
- Gift Cards for Walgreens, Safeway, Ross, local restaurants, etc… (For survivors and their children who must flee without funds to supply for their basic needs.)
- Motel Vouchers (for those survivors who may only need one night in a confidential location as they prepare to enter shelter, or leave town)
- Muni Passes or Muni Passport or Muni single ride tickets
- BART Tickets (for those survivors who don’t have transportation, but desperately need to leave San Francisco)
- Funds for documentation reproduction, court related costs and other costly, one time needs
- Gently used clothing, household appliances and other donations can be made in W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s name at Community Thrift, 623 Valencia, San Francisco.
In addition, W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s administrative office is in need of the following items:
