The Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services (UCDVS) believes that all persons have the right to live free from violence and fear, especially in their own homes. The program’s purpose is to provide practical assistance and support for victims of domestic violence, while seeking to create an environment that supports individual safety and breaks the cycle of violence. Your donation can help make a difference!
UCDVS shelters are in need of the following items: children’s toys and games, acrylic paints, cleaning supplies, paper goods, food and drink items, diapers (size 4 & 5), female hygiene products, bath towels, and gift cards.
