Donate Today

Last year your donations helped The Willow provide nearly 7,000 nights of safe bed rest to survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking in Douglas, Franklin, and Jefferson county.  Your money provides these survivors with food, clothing, assistance replacing lost documents like driver's licenses and birth certificates, and much needed school supplies for the children in our shelter.  You can donate once, or choose to make a monthly or annual donation.  Thank you for your kind support!
