  • Families leaving abusive situations often have to leave without much resources. Insurance and public assistance does not always cover all costs. We are accepting gift card donations for #domesticviolenceawarenessmonth. Gift cards, in any amount, will be accepted at the UHM Women’s Center through the month of October and will be donated to domestic violence shelters on O'ahu. #uhmwomen #pauviolence

  • We are doing something different for domestic violence awareness month this year. At the request of the shelters, we will not be taking the normal donation items due to a lack of storage space. Instead, we will be doing a gift card drive. Gifts cards to local drug and grocery stores in any amount can be gifted to residents at any time and are helpful in the interim/transition. Please email if you have any questions.

Thank you so much for your continued support. #pauviolence #uhmwomen #dvam #dvam2019

  • Having a healthy relationship takes a lot of work for everyone involved. Abuse is not a couples counseling issue or an anger management issue. Abuse is far more deep rooted. It is OK to get help. Even if it’s just to ask questions or to speak to someone. #pauviolence #Repost @dranitaphillips with @get_repost
