Women and men who come to the Domestic Violence Services shelter are in crisis, often leaving their homes with nothing: no extra clothing, nothing for their children, and little or no money.
In 2008, the DVS sheltered 189 women for a total of 2,594 nights. 158 children were sheltered for 1,979 nights. 13,840 meals were provided.
The following items can be donated to help provide supplies for people needing shelter:
13-gallon garbage bags
Children's socks and underwear
Women's socks, underwear and bras
Sweats, all sizes
Baby diapers, all sizes
Phone and gas cards
Drop items at the DVS office, 240 S.E. Second St, Suite B, Hermiston or call (541) 567-0424
