Shop For Us

Imagine having over 100 house guests every year…the wear and tear on your household items would be a lot to keep up with! That’s why we’re always looking for donations (NEW only, please!!) to replenish the stocks of basic household goods we maintain in our three residential programs, and to help celebrate special occasions (birthdays, holidays, graduations) in the lives of the women and children we serve.

Contact or call 617-521-0182 to organize a drive today.
