The mission of Women and Children's Horizons is to provide support, shelter, education, training and healing services to victims of sexual and domestic abuse, their families and the community.
As we all try to navigate during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have many staff working from home. The administration office and shelter are open with reduced staff. Please call if you are in need of services. We will try to serve some clients over the phone if possible. We are also asking that you do not bring any donations.
Nifty Thrifty is closed until at least the end of March. We will re-evaluate at that time. We are also asking that you please do not bring donations to Nifty Thrifty until we re-open. We will definietly be needing donors and shoppers when we return. We look forward to seeing you then!
We will continue to evaluate and monitor the situation daily. We appreciate your understanding during these difficult circumstances. Many are financially affected, which is likely true of all non-profits. If you would like to support Women and Children's Horizons you can make a donation on this website (bottom of screen) or visit our Facebook page. We appreciate your support and hope that we can resume our normal business operations soon! Take care everyone and remember to choose kindness as we are all in this together!
