CHALLENGE #26 - 2016

CHILDREN’S INN - Sious Falls, SD


This is our first shelter in South Dakota and hopefully not the last.

Domestic violence shelters are expensive to operate as you can imagine. Expenses from the usual operating costs are increased by the need for safety for everyone....not just the women and children in shelter. but the staff and volunteers as well. All shelters will have one or more layers of security to keep everyone safe and secure.

Shelters receive funding from state and local sources. In addition to that, many large corporations make grants also. Among them are the United Way, Mary Kay, Microsoft and many others. Through their generosity, shelters such as Children's Inn are able to provide services to help those who may no longer have a home due to domestic violence.

For Children's Inn, we will need:

25 women - DONE

8 preteen girls - DONE
8 preteen boys - DONE
8 youth girls - DONE
8 youth boys - DONE
8 toddler girls - DONE
8 toddler boys - DONE
6 baby girls - DONE

85 washcloths - DONE
