Womens’ Shelters

The Single Mothers Day at church is moving along. I called some local organizations to invite women. I’ve called our local shelter for women who’ve been abused to give the shelter director the information. My friend Darlene contacted a woman who helps our local military families who have spouses that are deployed. We thought it would be nice to include them even though they are not technically single. The last place I called was the newest woman’s shelter here.

I had to leave a message. Just a few days ago I got a call back from the director. She thanked us for the invitation but explained that the woman in this particular shelter are in either drug rehab or alcohol rehab. She went on to explain that there may be “triggers” at our event. I told her that I understood and offered her some of the hotel shampoos, conditioners and lotions if we have any left over. She said that they could definitely use them.

I guess when you are in rehab it’s best to remain in a controlled environment. I pray that these women make it through the program. I’ll mention it to our Pastor so that we can pray for them at the event.
