Due to the COVID-19 Emergency, we are currently not accepting any donated goods.
If you would like to lend a hand to families escaping abuse right now, we recommend donating gift cards ($25 increments) for Target or Safeway.
Cards can be mailed to the community offices at 2211 Palm Avenue, San Mateo, CA 94403.
Frequently, survivors and their children show up at the Safe House with nothing but the clothes on their back. You can support these families escaping intimate partner abuse by providing a few essential items.
Below is a list of items that we can always use. Donated items should be dropped off at our offices, as we do not have a pick-up service. In keeping with our mission of treating all clients with respect and dignity, we ask that all donated clothing be new and other items in good condition.
