In-Kind Donations  

Thanks for thinking of us!  There are several ways to donate:

  • To buy and ship donations directly to us, visit our Amazon Wish List.  Purchase through Amazon Smile to give back further.  Donations can be shipped to 1201 E Main St., Endicott, NY 13760.  
  • We accept drop off donations on Tuesday and Thursdays from 9am-4pm.  Please wear a mask, or for contactless drop off, you can call from our parking lot and leave on the porch.  Due to safety concerns, anything left on the porch unattended and without notice will need to be thrown away.
  • To keep staff and our community safe from COVID, we have limited administrative staff in the building to sort donations.  Please limit your donation to 4 bags/boxes per trip and to items specified in our wish list or items we always need lists below.

Please call 748.7453 with any questions.

What is domestic violence?

Domestic Violence is a pattern of coercive behavior. This pattern can include abuse of various sorts of one family member by another including:

Perpetrators of domestic violence have a goal to establish and maintain power and control over their partners and/or other family members.

This violence affects people in every racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic group and includes people of all ages who have lived together or who have had an intimate relationship.

Domestic violence often escalates in severity and frequency over time and can have serious health and psychological ramifications.
