Here are some of the ways that your gift makes an impact:
$35 supports training for a volunteer counselor to staff our LifeLine. A woman calling the LifeLine can speak to a trained, compassionate volunteer for information, resources, advocacy, emotional support, and a safety plan for herself and her children.
$50 supports transportation assistance for a WIT client, so that she has access to WIT’s services such as peer support groups and counseling sessions.
$75 purchases toys and supplies for children in Playcare. A client can bring children with her to WIT, and leave them safely in Playcare while she meets her counselor or attends her peer support group.
$150 places a woman and her children in a safe location for one night.
$250 supports a woman with 2 individual counseling sessions with a WIT counselor so that she can begin to move forward in her life.
$500 supports LifeLine Skill Development workshops for WIT clients. They can learn and gain skills to use moving forward – financial empowerment and management, family law, healthy relationships, self-care, among others.
WIT donors have contributed through workplace giving drives, house parties, and giving circles. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for ideas and suggestions about how you and your friends can give to WIT together for an even bigger impact.
