The CVIC Client Emergency Fund was started by gracious donors, Pete and Mel Hoistad, several years ago in an effort to empower our staff to move quickly on a dire need for an individual or family working hard to maintain their freedom and independence. The fund was created for the purpose of paying for immediate needs for clients in shelter such as new ID cards, keeping their home, and food for their families.

Help people, like Lydia*, maintain their independence in their search for freedom.

Your donations help pay for immediate needs for clients in shelter such as new ID cards, keeping their home, and food for their families.

Financial need is one of the leading reasons someone returns to an abusive relationship.

Please help us prevent that from happening.
