Father’s Day


YOU can help us make an impact this Father’s Day by giving the gift of safety, time, and peace of mind to a victim of domestic violence and their children!

Each year, the Shelter for Help in Emergency provides support services to over
400 adults and children through our residential and outreach programs.

A donation of $45 to the Shelter for Help in Emergency provides one night of security and refuge, a night of restful sleep without abuse, and an opportunity to regain the strength and confidence needed on the journey ahead. For each night of safety provided, the Shelter will send a personalized card to the man in your life you’ve chosen to honor this Father’s Day.

After making your donation of safety, you can choose to honor them further by sending us a photo along with a brief message on why they mean so much to you for us to post on our Facebook page.  You’ll then be able to tag the photo for all your friends to see.  Send your photo and message to info@shelterforhelpinemergency.org.

Father’s Day cards can be purchased through our website’s donation page, please specify in the instructions section that its for Father’s Day and leave a personalized message along with the recipient’s address, or call Jenny at (434) 963-4676.
