How To Help

Our shelter is completely furnished with donations from generous people just like you! 

We are currently undergoing an update and transformation and would like to make the shelter as nice and as homey as possible for our residents. Volunteers from Habitat for Humanity are in the process of painting the interior. Once that work is complete, new flooring, paid for by a grant from The Cannon Foundation, will be installed. We hope to revamp the furniture and accessories once that work is done. 

All donations are welcome but some specific items on our wish list are:

  • Chests of drawers 
  • Lamps
  • Alarm clocks
  • Wall clocks
  • Mirrors
  • Silk flower arrangements
  • Living room furniture
  • Bath towels
  • Wash cloths
  • Kitchen towels, pot holders, etc.
  • Laundry detergent 
  • Fabric Softener
  • Dishes
  • Small kitchen appliance

In addition to donations for shelter use, many times a victim comes to us with little more than the clothes they are wearing. When they break free of their old life and transition out of our shelter, Steps to HOPE helps get them started in their new home with many of the household items that starting over requires. Your donation may be used in these efforts. Please know that no donation will be taken for granted, nor will it go to waste. 

Thank you to the Family Violence Prevention Services Program, US DHHS, and NC Council for Women for financial support.
