We are not allowed to accept donations of new or used goods at our shelter or office locations during response to COVID-19. Instead, we are working with the Lexington Office of Homelessness & Intervention for supplies as needed. Currently, we most need hand sanitizer. Anyone who would like to donate can drop donations off to the Office of Homelessness Prevention and Intervention, located at 101 East Vine Street, between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm, Monday – Friday.

Your generous donation of these goods and supplies really matters to survivors and our organization. Unless otherwise noted, we can only accept the donation of new goods and supplies at our shelter facility.


Rest Well 

It’s our goal to welcome every adult and child to the shelter with new twin-size sheet sets, a new pillow, and a new comforter of their own. When it’s time to leave shelter, survivors can take their bedding to their new home. A donation drive to collect new pillows and beds-in-a-bag is a wonderful way to support our shelter.

Socks for Survivors 
On any given day, about 32 survivors are living at our shelter. That’s 62 feet of different sizes–newborn feet, tweenager feet, adult feet–and we’re always in need of new socks to keep them warm. A donation drive to collect new socks for adults and children living at our shelter really helps. (amazon wish list)

Sorting Things Out
So much laundry gets done at our shelter every day! And our small shelter just doesn’t offer a lot of storage space for families. A donation drive of towels, laundry baskets, carts, and storage bins helps survivors and the shelter stay organized. (amazon wish list)

Under Drive
People often don’t think about donating basic necessities like new undergarments, but these items sure do help at our shelter. We’re often in need of children’s and adult plus-size underwear. (amazon wish list)

Around the Farm
We believe bodies and spirits heal in nature. That’s why we farm the 40-acre property that surrounds our shelter. A donation drive for the farm will assure survivors have the gloves, hats, and hand supplies needed for a day in the sun and fresh air. (amazon wish list)

Supporting Transitions
The lives of survivors can change quickly after fleeing abuse. Many will begin new jobs and move to a new home as they begin again. Other survivors might need to flee the area to live with family or friends in another state until it’s safe enough for them to return. Gifts of gift cards help our staff to be prepared to support survivors during these transitions. (amazon wish list)

DONATION FAQS

When is a good time to drop off my donation?

Delivery is preferred Monday – Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. or by appointment.

Can you pick up my donation?

No, we aren’t able to pick up donated items.

Do you accept donations of gently used clothing and furniture?

Unless otherwise noted, we can only accept the donation of new goods at our shelter. We ask that donations of gently used clothing and household goods be made to area Goodwill or Habitat ReStore locations. Both of these organizations issue regular vouchers to our organization. We, in turn, distribute these vouchers to survivors. This process provides survivors with the opportunity to shop for clothing that fits and items they need most.

Why don't you accept used donations at the shelter?

We really do appreciate you thinking about survivors. Our shelter just doesn’t have a lot of extra space to store donated goods, and sorting/organizing gently used donations often requires many hours of staff time. Our partnerships with area Goodwill and Habitat ReStore locations allow our staff and the shelter’s space to be dedicated to safety and healing services for survivors.
