To leave an abusive domestic situation, a woman must also leave her home and belongings. After a stay in a woman's shelter, she must begin anew to make a safe home for herself and her children - and she has no beds, no dressers, no table or chairs - no items that turn an apartment into a home. This is where the FreeStore - an all non-paid volunteer organization - comes in. We collect furniture and household items and store them in a warehouse. When a woman leaves a domestic abuse shelter, she can come to our warehouse and choose whatever items she needs for her apartment. FreeStore volunteers even move her items to her new apartment.
