Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are all facing an unprecedented challenge. Shelter life, which is never an easy one, is made even more difficult and challenging right now when feelings of uncertainty, fear, and anxiety are troubling the women and children who are staying with us.
HOW IS ERNESTINE’S COPING WITH THE CORONA CRISIS?
Ernestine’s is committed to continuing to deliver our essential services to support the women and children at the shelter. We will continue to hold steady, we will continue to operate, and we will continue to be there for the women and children in our community and help them break the cycle of violence.
We need you to help make it a reality!
During these trying times, we at Ernestine’s are comforted by the extraordinary support of our donors. We are optimistic that we will all come together in this trying time and create a better and stronger Ernestine’s to support women and children escaping violence and abuse.
Please donate to support Ernestine’s essential work to keep women and their children sheltered and supported during this time of crisis, uncertainty, and increased demand!
