There are more than 1,800 homeless women living in Spokane each day. Meeting their basic needs can be a struggle for VOA's Hope House and Transitions' Women's Hearth. Imagine not having access to bras, underwear and personal hygiene items due to poverty and homelessness (here's our Amazon Wish List). Physiology and biology are facts of life and women shouldn't be punished because of it.

You can help!

Host a virtual Mardi Bras Party and collect monetary donations, bras, underwear, deodorant, tampons and bus passes for women experiencing homelessness in Spokane and accessing services at Women's Hearth (day-time drop-in women's center) and/or Hope House (overnight women's shelter). Check out this video for Hope House and this video for Women's Hearth , and feel free to share them on social media, at your party, anywhere!

You or your guests can drop off all your donated items at our Drive-Thru Drop-Off on Saturday, February 20th, between 10am and 2pm, at the Grocery Outlet on 1617 W 3rd Ave, Spokane.

All monetary donations will be split equally between Hope House and Women's Hearth; all in-kind donations will be used to help these and other programs of Volunteers of America and Transitions.

If we have enough and there is a need, we will also share items with other community organizations helping women in poverty, including social service agencies and schools.

About the charity

Transitions operates six programs that work to end poverty and homelessness for women and children in Spokane, WA. These programs include a daytime drop-in center, transitional and permanent housing, childcare, and job training. Each year we serve more than 1,500 women and children.
