How you can get involved with Sheltering Wings
As a non-profit organization, Sheltering Wings relies on the support of individuals, churches, businesses, and other organizations to accomplish our important mission.
It costs more than $1.2 million dollars annually to operate our shelter facility. We keep our costs under control through prudent management and generous community donations of food, supplies, and services. Still, a million dollars is a substantial sum.
Sheltering Wings serves a critically important role in our community. To continue in that role, we need support from the community. That includes financial support from individuals, organizations, businesses, and churches; a steady supply of volunteers; and a willingness to help us spread awareness about domestic violence and the services we provide.
This section of our website includes a wide variety of ways in which individuals, organizations, businesses, and churches can become involved with Sheltering Wings. We also encourage everyone to stay connected with us through social media, so you can stay up to date on what’s happening and learn about current needs and opportunities.

Sheltering Wings recognizes the strength of diversity which acknowledges a society of different individuals and cultures whose knowledge, skills and talents enrich and strengthen us as a community. Sheltering Wings believes in and practices equal opportunity in all aspects of the organization, from community engagement, employment, volunteer management and board participants and all other aspects of decision-making.
