Wish List

A Safe Place depends on donations to keep the continual needs of our clients met. The everyday staple items you and I count on are critical to the success of both our organization and those we serve.

Because our needs can change from day to day, check our Social Media platforms for the most up to date list of needs. We also accept monetary and gift card donations to aide in purchasing needed supplies.

Your Impact:

When you are a survivor, sometimes it’s the little things that keep you from making a full break. It may be the need for diapers that has you returning, or knowing your child doesn’t have a bed to sleep on that makes you try and work things out again. When we can help provide for the basic needs, it gives those fighting for a new way of life another step that helps them to keep walking. These gifts make an incredible impact, as seen in a quote by Debra* (name changed for anonymity), a survivor that expressed her gratitude for in-kind contributions:

“Please tell them that our baby that is expected had her first day with mama having no stress about how to provide for her. Please tell them that the girls wanted to bring it [the items they took] all back so the baby could have more, and we got to tell them that A Safe Place gave us more than we all need and because of them our little baby will never be without anything and neither will they.
The girls cried and hugged the things they had chosen.
Please tell them that my mother told us she was thankful to experience the genuine hearts of people who care in a world that has only abused her.
Do the people who give understand that a box of diapers or a few pieces of baby clothes bring us hope? Do they understand that knowing someone cares about what we are going through helps us believe we will make it ok?
Tell them thank you. Tell them we will never forget them for this.” 

General Wish List

Please note that we are still unable to accept women’s and children’s used clothing due to COVID-19 restrictions. Download our General Wish List here:

We are also in need of gift cards, especially Visa, Target, WalMart, and Amazon gift cards.

Donations that do not meet the standards and restrictions of A Safe Place will not be accepted; these include but are not limited to the following:

  • Used clothing
  • Car seats
  • Magazines
  • Stuffed animals
  • Old computers
  • TV’s and other electronics older than 3 years

A Safe Place keeps our costs down by asking our donors to bring the items to our facilities. Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to do pick ups.
