The Awo Taan Healing Lodge invites you to join us to support women and their families during the holidays through our Adopt A Family Program.
This 2013 holiday season, we have more new families and children who need your support.
With your help women and their children who are struggling to build lives free of violence and abuse receive support and hope!
Each year, our supporters have been generous with financial contributions, gift cards or gifts to give our resident clients. Our goal is to help the women and their families who are resident in the shelter during the Christmas period with a gift card, food hampers or gifts for each member of the family.
This sometimes means buying winter coats or boots for her children or replacing a unique toy lost when fleeing the abusive home. Through our Christmas Adopt a Family Christmas Program you are providing encouragement and hope for families by giving during the holidays.
Please pass on this excitement to women and children struggling to create a life free of abuse.
One of the important benefits of this program is clients receive assistance to help them through this difficult time. For further information on our Christmas Adopt A Family Program please contact Awo Taan Healing Lodge:
