2016 Recipients

Lamb’s Fold Center for Women and Children

www.LambsFold.org

Lambs’ Fold provides domestic-violence services to  homeless and abused women and children.

Lamb’s Fold helps single mothers and their children who are homeless and abused.  The organization lifts them up, provides shelter, food, clothing, and basic necessities.  It also provides a program to help them get back on their feet and, eventually, on their own.  Funding from WNO will provide mothers with basic necessities for their children including meals, school supplies, clothing, and even beds.  It also provides an abused woman with the counseling and job training needed to become a self-sufficient single parent.

Guardian Angel Community Services

Guardian Angel assists women who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault

The generous donation from Witches Night Out provides the Groundwork Domestic Violence Program at Guardian Angel Community Services with the ability to meet their clients’ needs in many ways.  Last year, Groundwork replaced an outdated freezer in their shelter kitchen and purchased brand new beds for client use.  The donation also assists in providing the sheltered women and children with food, basic need items, and ongoing supportive services.

 

Companions Journeying Together ~ Aunt Mary’s Storybook Project

www.cjtinc.org

Companions Journeying Together is a newly-added beneficiary of Witches Night Out.  The goal of Aunt Mary’s Storybook Project is to provide imprisoned parents with a positive way to reach out to their children.

The parent chooses a story book; and, with the help of a volunteer, the parent reads the story, which is recorded.  The recorded CD and book is then sent to the children of that parent.  WNO’s donation will be used to purchase books, CD’s,  and postage for mailings.
