Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Doorways for Women and Families, Inc.! Doorways operates shelters for families affected by domestic violence and homelessness.

Over the past year I have volunteered at a variety of Doorways events. I am always amazed at the profound ways in which the organization touches people's lives. It is truly remarkable.

On a recent Saturday evening one of my favorite residents announced that she and her two small children were moving out the following day. While I was sad to see them go, I realized what a wonderful turning point this was for this lovely family. Thanks to Doorways, this family was able to branch out on their own. Doorways was there to support them when they needed it and gave them the tools they needed to get back on their feet.

This woman is like so many you might know. I don't think we realize how domestic violence and homelessness affects so many people on a daily basis. In this case, this woman was an employee at a local supermarket. I learned this when she came home one night wearing her uniform. It really made me think - when we buy our groceries, we are totally unaware of whether the person standing behind the register is living in a shelter.

Please help me further the meaningful work that Doorways continues. Any amount is so appreciated.Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support! It means so much to me and to the many, many people who are helped by Doorways.
