Donations

How can I help?

Donations:

The Green Hills Women’s Shelter depends on financial contributions to maintain many of our shelter services.     The shelter is funded primarily through  grants from our two major funding sources: The Department of Public Safety and The Missouri Department of Social Services.    Our grants require us to earn our money through services we provide and donation matching.

Here is our current needs list at each shelter site:

As a private, non-profit organization, your donations are very important to us! Every penny truly does count in the struggle against domestic violence and sexual assault. A donation to GHWS stays local – helps local families fighting personal battles to stand tall and make it on their own – to become self-sufficient!
