“My kids will be so excited to open their gifts. Thank you for giving us something to look forward to this year.” - Survivor

Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh (WC&S) is excited to share the results of the 2021 Adopt-a-Family program, our annual holiday gift card drive that gives WC&S clients the opportunity to purchase holiday gifts for their children. Because of your incredible generosity, WC&S'  Adopt-A-Family program provided $51,600 in gift cards to 1,032 survivors and their children this holiday season. Thank you!

Thank you for providing help to make the holidays brighter for a family affected by intimate partner violence. WC&S serves more than 7,500 survivors and their children annually and many of them continue to be impacted by the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Why gift cards? It may seem impersonal, but your donation of Target, Wal-Mart, or Visa gift cards is deeply meaningful to the hundreds of mothers who have been made to feel powerless by their abusers. When you give them the chance to shop and select the perfect gift for their own child, you are helping them to regain their sense of control and freedom.

Contact Jake at or (412) 894-4559  with questions. 

Thank you to everyone who donated!
