Your gift of $45 provides one full day and night of shelter and other needed services for survivors of Domestic Violence. Please make your donation here.

Even on the sunniest summer days, there is darkness in homes where there is Domestic Violence. Now, you have an opportunity to spread some sunshine by joining CAWC’s Sunshine Club.

Did you know that $300 covers the cost for a survivor of domestic violence to live safe and comfortably for one week at CAWC’s Greenhouse Shelter? And $45 for one day and night. This includes meals and needed supportive services.

For most nonprofits like CAWC, financial support slows to a crawl during the summer months. Yet the costs are often higher during this time, as Greenhouse Shelter provides a temporary home to women and children escaping domestic violence.

Please join CAWC’s Sunshine Club by making a one-time gift of $300 for premium membership, or $45 for standard membership. As a premium Sunshine Club member your name or the name of your company will be posted below on this special Club page on, and a list of new members will be shared weekly on CAWC’s social media. Most of all, with either membership level you will help to ensure that there is a “home away from home” for those who are suffering an abusive and dangerous relationship.
