Supporting abused women

Thank you to all in our community who donated food, personal care items, household goods and dollars to the Harvest Food and Supply Drive.

Your support makes a positive difference in the lives of domestic abuse survivors seeking refuge at the Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan’s (WRCNM) Safe Home.

Picture a woman who makes the courageous decision to leave her home because it is no longer safe for herself or her children.

Think about how she feels arriving at the Safe Home with few, if any, personal belongings.

Imagine the multiple obstacles faced as she starts this new and challenging journey.

Your contributions help create a new pathway of hope for survivors and their children. Your support makes the shelter “home” to the many families utilizing Safe Home services.

On behalf of the families that rely on our services, we thank you. Please know you have helped make a difference in the lives of others in your community.
