Holiday Message

What an amazing year. Over 10,000 people affected by domestic violence, many of whom had nothing for the Holidays, received gifts, stockings, food coupons, necessities, and a little hope that things will return to normal for the Holidays.

Thanks to everybody who adopted families, sponsored stockings, donated money, volunteered time, made baked goods, and helped us get the word out in 2014.

We are taking a little time off for the Holidays, but will be back early in 2015. So if you call or email, we won’t be able to get right back to you. Unfortunately the need continues 365 days a year, so if you would like to make a donation online, please do. There is always a need for grocery gift cards etc. and we will make sure 100% of your donation goes directly to those in need.

Happy Holidays!

The Friends and Helpers Team


Friends and Helpers Welcome

Friends and Helpers provides assistance to women, children and teens who find themselves involved in domestic violence. We work with many of the centers in Southern California and help provide support, needed items and encouragement so they can rebuild their lives. Our goal is to support and encourage women, teens and children who are trying to help themselves out of a violent, hurtful situation.

Abuse can strike anyone anywhere; spouses, parents, children and teens can fall victim to abuse. When the survivors are brave enough to finally leave their abusive situation, many flee with their kids and the clothes on their backs to counseling centers and shelters.

The challenge is that more and more women and children are seeking help and each year and Friends and Helpers must expand to fit the growing needs of these deserving souls. We hope you will join in our mission and help a very worthwhile cause.
