Backyard Rejuvenation

In these times of physical distancing, we’ve had to create separate “zones” in the shelter’s backyard for children, women and staff.

The women’s area will see a shade structure built and a seating area created with patio stones and outdoor furniture.

Thanks to the generosity of a local service club, we were able to purchase a play set for young children. We hope to improve the kids’ area by introducing a small water feature and outdoor play toys.
Staff will have a small respite area with seating for times when they need to decompress after helping a woman who has experienced trauma.

Our clients are eager to be outside after being restricted to their shelter bedrooms due to COVID-19 guidelines. You can help women and their children enjoy these improvements by donating here.
