The Women's Housing Partnership at Simpson works with women experiencing long-term homelessness helping them locate housing and maintain their new homes. The program works with 80 women who have been homeless for several years. The women have survived living in shelter, outside, and in unsafe living situations with abusive partners. They are coming from places where they do not have many personal belongings. In addition to shelter, the staff also works to find household items to help the women feel welcome and self-sufficient in their new homes.
Help us welcome a woman to her new home and coordinate a supply drive for women. The supplies we need are:
Feminine hygiene products
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Kitchen garbage bags
Cleaning products- bleach, 409, comet, etc
Knives and other cooking utensils such as spatulas, can openers
Cups and glassware
Shower curtains and rings
Blankets and comforters (regular blankets, no throw blankets)
Other items that help make a house a home but not essential such as clocks, radios, TV or DVD players.
Volunteers may work on the entire list, or tailor the drive to a few items that you feel most passionately about.
