How To Help

Our shelter is completely furnished with donations from generous people just like you! 

To make our shelter feel more like home, we update furniture and accessories when good condition items are donated. All donations are welcome, but some specific items on our wish list are:


  • Twin bed or frame (we have a mattress and box spring)
  • Newer style sewing machines, fabric, notions, etc...
  • Knitting and crochet needles, hooks, yarn, patterns, etc.


  • Wall clocks
  • Alarm Clocks
  • Mirrors
  • Living room furniture
  • Tables and Chairs
  • High Chairs
  • Bath towels
  • Washcloths
  • Kitchen towels
  • Pot holders
  • Silverware
  • Laundry detergent 
  • Fabric Softener
  • Dishes
  • Small kitchen appliances
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paper products
  • New underwear for women and children
  • New socks for women and children

In addition to donations for shelter use, many times a victim comes to us with little more than the clothes they are wearing. When they break free of their old life and transition out of our shelter, Steps to HOPE helps get them started in their new home with many of the household items that starting over requires. Your donation may be used in these efforts. Please know that no donation will be taken for granted, nor will it go to waste.

Many thanks to Family Violence Prevention Services Program, US DHHS, and NC Council for Women for financial support and to our major golf tournament sponsors.
