Help us further our mission!

Thank you for choosing to support the H.E.R Shelter.  While much of our programming is supported through a variety of grants, many innovative projects and niceties of life are not.  We work tirelessly to provide safety, advocacy, leadership, sustainability, and support for survivors of domestic and sexual violence, human trafficking, stalking and homelessness.  Thanks to the support of our community we are able to provide the best possible services to the women and children who are in our shelter.  The H.E.R. Shelter is a registered non-profit organization so your contribution is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

If you would like to make a credit card donation just click on the button below.  If you would like to donate via check please send your donation to H.E.R Shelter

PO Box 2187, Portsmouth VA 23702.

We also accept in-kind donations of household goods, clothes, cleaning products, paper products etc.  We do have limited space to store donations so please contact Summer to confirm we are able to accept your donation.

Thank you for supporting survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault,  stalking and human trafficking.  Together we can make a real difference in the lives of others.


The H.E.R. Shelter is a private, non-profit agency, certified by the United Way of South Hampton Roads, and the statewide coalition: Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance (VSDVAA). We participate in the Coordinated Crisis Response, a 24-hour emergency hotline where a trained advocate can assist individuals in need of information, referrals, or - when appropriate - can provide safe, emergency housing for a woman and her children. The H.E.R Shelter currently operates three shelter facilities in the cities of Portsmouth and Chesapeake, Virginia.
