When we receive a call about a family who is fleeing an abusive home, our Emergency Response Team takes with them a kit of essential supplies when they meet the family. Women and children who arrive at our shelter are limited to what they can bring with them and often it is not much. The following items will help make a difficult transition and the recovery process just a little bit easier:

  • Gift cards for quick and convenient restaurants
  • Transportation tickets (BART, A/C transit, Muni)
  • Instant food (Cup O'Noodles, microwaveable mac & cheese, instant oatmeal)
  • Bottled water
  • Handheld can openers
  • Sweats (sets of tops and bottoms in sizes Medium and Extra Large)
  • Socks and underwear
  • Calling cards  
  • Duffel bags  
  • Twin-sized sheets
  • Shampoo

We appreciate donations of brand new, unopened items that will help us create comforting, quality care packages. Due to limited storage space, please call ahead of time to schedule a drop off (925.603.0120 or
