Snow-covered village

While the pandemic has been difficult for everyone, it has been particularly challenging for women and children trapped in abusive homes. But with your help, we plan on reminding each and every client that she is valued and loved this holiday season.

In order to keep staff, clients and volunteers safe, we have limited our Holiday Program to gift cards.* If you participated in our Holiday Program last year, then you’re familiar with the lasting impact that gift cards have in the lives of our clients! When you give a gift card, you provide a woman in need with the power to choose—a luxury that has repeatedly been stripped away from her by her abusive partner. This year, your gift will enable our clients to get whatever it is that they want and need most right now.

*To best meet the needs of our clients, we are limiting gift card type to ONLY Visa or Amazon. Over the years, we have found that these are the most requested by and provide a broad scope of services for our women and children.

Though all gifts will be in the form of gift cards, there are still several different ways in which you can participate:

ADOPT A FAMILY

Provide gift cards for an entire family! In choosing this option, you sign up to provide gift cards for an individual client, or a mother and her children that are receiving services at Genesis. Each woman will be given gift cards totaling $150 for herself, and every child will receive a $50 gift card. These cards are given early, along with wrapping supplies, so that mom is able to shop for her kiddos and put gifts under the tree herself.

To get started, please click here and fill out the form. A Holiday Elf will connect with you shortly.

SPONSOR AN ANGEL TREE

Choose this option if you’d like to sponsor our amazing kiddos. When you sponsor an angel tree, you allow a child to experience the magic of the holidays. This option is particularly great for large groups like offices or churches! You can select how many angels you’d like to sponsor and purchase one $25 gift card for each child.
