Items for the Shelter

When women, and their children, stay at our Emergency Shelter we provide them with everything they need. Thanks to our generous donors we are able to ensure that even if they arrive with no belongings, clothing and toiletries are available. Due to our limited storage space we do not keep large quantities of clothing at the Shelter, instead we partner with Victoria Women In Need Community Cooperative to ensure clothing needs are met. We provide full size bathroom products (body wash/shampoo/lotion) as guests are with us for 30 days. At any given time we may have sufficient supplies of one item and a shortage of another – if you are considering making a donation of items to VWTH please check the regularly updated list below to see what’s needed most. Due to storage and staff time constraints, we do not accept donations of used items.

What We Can’t Accept

  • Used clothing or linens.
  • Travel sized toiletries.
  • Furniture or electrical items unless specifically requested.
  • Children’s car seats.
