Now through December 19th, you have the opportunity to sponsor a child, adult, or family for Christmas!

Each year our Center collects gifts for clients and their children who have been victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, or loved ones of homicide victims. Many of our families come to our shelter with little more than what they were able to bring with them when they left. With your help, these families will be able to experience the joy of the season; for many it’s their first Christmas that doesn’t involve fear.

Sponsorship is easy! For more information, please contact LaDona Schwertman at or (228) 436-3809 and she will email, mail, or fax you a wish list. We even have our own elves to pick up the presents from you and wrap them! All gifts must be picked up by December 19th.

No time to shop? We’ll shop for you! You can still bring a twinkle to a child’s eye by donating money which will be used to purchase gifts. Visit our How To Help page to find options for financial giving.
