At the Coordinated Victims Assistance Center (CVAC), Share Your Heart provides food, clothing, spiritual and emotion support to the victims of domestic violence and human trafficking at our Boutique. The Boutique is a warm and peaceful place where the victims can come and feel empowered and loved. At the Boutique they can “shop” for clothing for themselves and their children at no cost. They are also provided with basic needs such as diapers, toiletries etc. This is also provided at no cost. That is why your donations and financial are so important.
The DCF hubs are the centers where children ages infant to eighteen years old are taken when an investigation is underway. Each hub approximately has a turnaround of 25-45 children and family members each day brought from police, detectives and DCF investigators from incidents that require the children to be taken care of until the investigation is complete.
During the investigation process there is a need for supplies, such as food, clothing, water, formula, diapers, baby wipes, sanitation supplies, toys, books, computers etc, as these children are taken and brought to the hubs usually not in favorable conditions and with great urgent basic needs. We also found ourselves receiving families with economic problems, no food and no shelter, asking for emergency assistance.
