About Our Kits

About Our Kits
Every kit is lovingly put together with great thought towards making it as beautiful as possible. Many of the items in the kit are hand-made with love. The women's kits are beautifully color coordinated. Each child's kit follows a color theme inspired by a book, action figure, or doll and is age and gender appropriate. 100% of our kits are made from donated items and all are created by our marvelous volunteers. Our goal is to let these families in crisis know that they are loved by us in the community and by their Heavenly Father. And to inspire them to have hope for the future.

Each kit contains a card with a message of hope and love. Every child's kit contains a lovely felt heart. Imagine the trauma the children are feeling being taken away from everything that is familiar to them; their home, friends, school, all their belongings and going to a strange place. Finding these bags of love on their bed as they enter the shelter is a huge comfort. We often hear that the children repeat over and over, "Is this really mine?" 

We give 4 basic types of kits: Domestic Violence Shelter Kits, Sexual Assault Kits, Refugee Kits, and Police Kits.
