Many survivors of domestic violence experience economic abuse, that could be somebody else controlling their money, taking their paychecks, stalking or harassing them at their jobs or getting them in trouble with their boss; and it is one of the primary reasons a survivor of domestic violence stays in an abusive relationship. Additionally, the majority of survivors we support do not have access to their family finances and depend on their partners for financial support. They may not have access to a checking or savings account or a credit card. Many survivors often come to the Refugio (shelter) with very few of their possessions. When residents leave the Refugio and move into a new home, therefore, they are often starting from scratch. We attempt to provide a Move-In kit for every resident that leaves our shelter so they have a smoother start in creating their new home. Here is a list of supplies that can be collected and assembled into Move-In kits for survivors and their children leaving our shelter:
- Laundry baskets
- Laundry detergent
- Clothes hangers (no wire please)*
- Dish soap and sponges
- Bathroom and kitchen cleaning supplies
- Paper towels
- Toilet paper and facial tissues
- Large pots and pans*
- Cooking utensils*
- Dishes and glassware*
- Coffee mugs*
- Large storage containers with locking lids (for moving and storage)*
- Bed linens, blankets, and comforters*
- Grocery, Gas, and shopping giftcards
*indicates that gently used items are accepted.
