At Herizon House we acknowledge that in order to end the cycle of violence we must work in partnership with our community. If you wish to support Herizon House and ensure that women and children can live without fear, then you can make a contribution that will ensure that our programs continue. Cash donations are always welcome and appreciated and can be used for the following:

  • Sending a taxi to pick up the women and children who call our crisis line and are fleeing from violence
  • Medications/prescriptions
  • The purchase of bus passes
  • School trips for the children
  • Slush fund for the women and kids – money on hand for unforeseen immediate needs such as underclothing in their size or items needed for the children’s schooling/special needs.

Other Donations:

Herizon House is endlessly thankful for the continued support that we receive from the community. Your generous donations have the ability to make a positive difference in the lives of women and children who are forced to leave their homes and all that is familiar to them in order to find safety in our shelter. We genuinely appreciate all donation efforts, but regretfully cannot accept some items due to health and safety reasons and lack of storage options. Here is a list of the items that cannot be accepted, although we do appreciate the thought:

  • Used children’s toys
  • Large furniture items
  • Baby furniture and equipment (cribs, strollers, play pens, car seats, etc.)

The following is a list of ways you can help and items that we are able to accept as donations. Thank you for your support!
