What makes November 29th different from any other day? You.

This week The Dwelling Place will participate in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity and generosity in response to the unprecedented needs caused by COVID-19. The Dwelling Place is the only shelter of its size in New York City specializing in the needs of women who have experienced recent violence. As a small shelter, we are able to provide women experiencing homelessness with individual attention in a safe, loving and supportive environment.

Giving Tuesday has become a national day of giving, following a weekend of shopping bookended by Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is a simple way to make a big impact. For many of the women that we serve, it’s those simple things that mean the most.

Your generosity on Giving Tuesday will support the daily needs of the women, providing them with healthy meals, safe shelter, and access to job training and workforce development programs. Your gift will also enable us to provide ongoing education to our staff and maintain our more than 100-year-old building.

Three Ways to Help on Giving Tuesday

Here are three different ways that you can help us continue this important work:

  1. If you are in a position to give, please consider making a donation of any amount to support The Dwelling Place of NY. Every gift makes a difference and is deeply appreciated.
  2. Amazon Wishlist. Visit our Amazon Wishlist for items you can purchase for us online.
  3. Raise awareness about The Dwelling Place of NY and the women we serve. Learn more about violence-related homelessness in our City – the numbers and causes. Consider forwarding a link to our site to five friends.

Most of all, please take good care of yourself and your loved ones. Please let us know if you have any prayer requests, as we want to support you, too. We are so grateful to have you in our Dwelling Place community. Together, we will come through this – more connected and with more joy and love for the simple beauties of life.

Thank you for all that you do!!
