THANK YOU so much for helping survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) and their children receive hope and joy this past holiday season! YOU empowered residents in our Emergency Shelter and other non-resident clients to shop for their children and provide them with the ultimate gift of choice. By donating Target, WalMart, or Visa gift cards, you gave residents and non-resident clients the opportunity to delight in the experience of purchasing and giving presents to their children! The Power of Your Generosity Thanks to your generosity, 965 survivors and their children had gifts during the holidays. That's 230 more clients served than last year! As our programs and services keep expanding, so too does the need for help during the holidays. THANK YOU for ensuring that survivors of IPV and their children had a happier holiday season. If there are any additional gift cards remaining, they are used to meet client needs throughout the year since survivors and their children often arrive at Emergency Shelter with little to nothing. These gift cards empower them as they start over. Your help made the holidays brighter for families affected by intimate partner violence, providing joy during such a difficult, uncertain, and strenuous time. WC&S serves more than 7,500 survivors and their children annually and many of them have been hit hard by the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for giving them the gift of a joyful holiday season. Please call (412) 687-8017 ext. 331 or email Jake Phillips at with any questions about our Adopt-A-Family Program.
