Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, AWAIC is taking several precautionary measures to keep our staff, the community, and the survivors staying in our emergency shelter as safe as possible. We are taking the actions listed below to practice social distancing and minimize foot traffic into our facility:
-We will not be accepting any in-kind donations, such as clothing or hygiene items. Please consider purchasing an item off of our Amazon Wishlist or making a cash donation.
-All support groups and staff meetings are cancelled.
AWAIC has been at or over capacity more than 50% of the time almost every year for the past decade. Today, the demand for additional beds, rooms, resources, and square footage in our domestic violence safe shelter is at an all-time high. Learn more about how you can help.
People often ask if the AWAIC emergency safe shelter tends be more crowded during specific times of year. Unfortunately domestic violence doesn't have a season. But YOU CAN make a difference all year long. Email email@example.com to become a monthly donor.
