In the world of nonprofits, there are grants that we receive that we must match or get reimbursed for - and in those cases personal donations like this are essential to continuing the flow of our services. You are literally making things happen for those in need! If you would like your donation to be specifically donated to a program or cause, please contact our office and let the administrator know. 

3) If you would rather write a check or make a donation in another fashion (as listed below), please see the contact information in the next tab for our mailing address and phone number.

An Smart Way to Contribute!

This is a cool little nugget of information! If you go to, and type in Help & Emergency Response as your dedicated organization, Amazon donates a little gift to us in your honor with every purchase and at no extra cost to you! It's honestly that simple. The phrase below sums it up pretty well - "You shop. Amazon gives." As you get ready for the holiday season, there is going to be so many orders placed online - why not have them all count towards the HER Shelter? Cool huh?
