People hear Women’s Shelter and think “women” or “shelter,” but the Women Shelter of South East Texas does so much more to prevent domestic violence. This organization serves not only women, but also men and children, at no cost by providing shelter, counseling advocacy, case management, among many other services. With 39 years of experience, this organization aims to end domestic violence and sexual assault in South Texas.
With many years of experience, the Women’s Shelter of South Texas has decided that if we want to prevent violence, we have to start with the youth in out community. By tackling these issues at a young age, we can assist the cycle of violence so children and youth can grow up to achieve and maintain violence-free lives. Some of the ways in which this organization addresses these issues is through their Youth Services Program, which consists of working with youth in age-appropriate ways through topics such as respect, bullying, self-esteem, gender roles, consent, among others. However, programs for adult offenders of family violence are also offered, to address all aspect of violence in the community.
Join us as we support this amazing organization in their journey to end domestic and sexual violence in future generations. We are raising funds to provide gently used and new items that will help with the programs at the shelter!
