WomenSafe Community Service Project Update: Thank You For Making It a Success!


Dear Friends of Shadybrook,

We are so pleased to report the outpouring of donations for WomenSafe’s most needed items: hoodies, pajamas, winter coats, and household items.  Many families will be kept warm and comfortable this winter with your thoughtful gifts.  Additionally, our community has raised $520 to support WomenSafe’s shelter and support programs!

As a result of your compassionate urgings, we are pleased to announce Shadybrook has selected WomenSafe to support as a community connection. Here is the Women Safe Mission Statement:


WomenSafe’s mission is to provide emergency shelter and support services for survivors of domestic violence throughout Northeastern Ohio. WomenSafe responds to the needs of victims experiencing domestic violence and provides education in the community aimed at reducing the incidence of domestic violence and making the community aware of what help is available.
