Save the Date for the 19th Annual Safe Quarters on Sunday, October 3rd, 2021
Safe Quarters is a one-day, community-wide effort to collect financial contributions for victims of domestic violence and their children seeking refuge at Friendship Home.
Safe Quarters also exists to raise awareness of domestic violence in Lincoln and Lancaster County and of the resources that are available to assist victims.
During Safe Quarters, over one hundred teams of dedicated volunteers go door-to-door collecting financial contributions for Friendship Home from houses in the Lincoln, Hickman, and Waverly communities. Volunteers are armed with collection buckets and informational materials about Friendship Home and domestic violence.
In 2019, over $115,000 was raised.
Funds collected provide a safe, confidential shelter, crisis services, and ongoing support for families who are rebuilding their lives because of domestic violence. Safe Quarters is vital to Friendship Home’s doors remaining open to those in need.
The help of the whole Lincoln and surrounding communities are needed for Safe Quarters to be a success. Your participation will help end violence in the lives of victims in our community.
It may even save a life.
If you are interested in participating in Safe Quarters or have any questions, please email Dani or call her at 402-434-0167.
Virtual Stuff the Bus
April 5th – 18th
Friendship Home, StarTran, and Alpha Media are partnering for the 22nd Annual Stuff the Bus. This year’s VIRTUAL event is happening NOW! Visit the Stuff the Bus event page, today through April 18th, to “shop” our online platform to provide highly needed items for victims of domestic violence.
Donations from Stuff the Bus will allow families served at Friendship Home to receive the everyday essential items they need while rebuilding their lives — free from domestic violence.
Since many of these families enter through Friendship Home’s shelter doors with no more than the clothes on their backs, Stuff the Bus is critical to support their needs as they begin this journey.
