Notable gifts

In 2017 we were very blessed with the support of the Theisen’s Foundation Matching Funds as well as a grant from the Hall-Perrine Foundation! These funds were spent specifically in the remodel of our new addition, CWHx. This house is an extended stay shelter for single mothers to stay for up to six months.

If your company has matching funds or grants, we’d love to talk. Please call Larissa or Jasmine at 319-362-9041.
