Genesis Women's Shelter


Genesis Women's Shelter logoDuring the month of June, the Staff Forum will collect personal toiletry items for clients of the Genesis Women's Shelter.


Genesis provides safety and shelter through crisis intervention to battered women and children in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.  It provides everything clients need to feel as comfortable as possible during their time of crisis.  The shelter's ultimate goal is to reduce violence against women and children.


Personal items are being collected through June 21.  Full size items are preferred.  Any sample size items donated will benefit the Austin Street Shelter.  Items can be delivered/dropped off in the basement break area and in the Financial Aid Office (Room 515).  Toiletries will be packaged together into personal care kits to ease delivery by Genesis staff to the clients. 


Anyone interested in assisting with packing the kits should contact Liz Lester at llester@bcd.tamhsc.edu or Darla Benson at dbenson@bcd.tamhsc.edu.

Many clients arrive at the Genesis Women's Shelter with little more than the clothes on their backs. Your donations of the suggested items above will immediately and directly provide comfort during a difficult time in their lives.
