Hot Stiletto’s community outreach not only raise funds for those that are directly affected by abuse, but also provides hands-on volunteer opportunities by interacting with those housed in domestic violence shelters.
Our goal is to uplift, inspire, support, and build confidence to a sisterhood of women that are seeking safety from their abusers.
Most survivors arrive with only the clothes they are wearing.
Domestic violence shelters provide for immediate needs: safe shelter, meals, clothing, and personal hygiene items.
An estimated 3 to 4 million women are abused by their partners every year in the United States. When domestic violence occurs, women have limited options. Shelters do important work, but sadly, they are often underfunded and understaffed. And, in many cases, there is simply not a shelter nearby for women and their children to turn to. While there are over 3,800 animal shelters in America, there are only 1,500 shelters for victims of domestic violence.
These numbers paint a stark picture of the reality that battered women face every day in this country. There are many ways you can help, but one of the best ways is by supporting the shelter nearest your home. Click here to find out what shelters in your area need most urgently.
While needs vary from location to location, here is a general list of the most pressing items that these life-saving facilities desperately need:
Hair Care Products
Old Mobile Phones
Public Transportation Cards
Dental Hygiene Items
Kids’ Games, Crafts & Books
Bras And Underwear
Diapers And Wipes
