McCarthy Building Companies
Heart Hat Volunteers
Earlier this month, the Heart Hats team at McCarthy Building Companies volunteered their time and resources to provide TWSH with substantial shelter improvements. McCarthy went above and beyond any donation or service project we could have imagined. Before the service day, McCarthy came to tour the facility and discuss the needed maintenance and ways they could help. The following week Heart Hats volunteers returned with supplies in hand and spent an entire day with us making repairs. Services provided included new flooring in our AfterCare office, replacement of lighting fixtures in the dining area, mounting a TV in our community room, servicing sixteen furnaces, and painting our community room as well as the upstairs residential hallway.
There aren’t enough thank yous that can show our gratitude for McCarthy. Our shelter is a temporary home to over 450 women and children each year providing residents with over 12,000 bed nights. The Women’s Safe House knows the stress individuals of domestic violence face while living in a shelter and the uncertainty they deal with while looking for permanent housing, adding another layer of stress while trying to overcome trauma and focus on healing. Because of this stress, TWSH strives to provide a safe space that feels more like a home and McCarthy has been helping us achieve this goal for 10 years. McCarthy continues to support TWSH in many ways by sponsoring our special events, sending Heart Hats volunteers for a yearly project, and having staff on our Board of Directors. We wouldn’t be nearly as successful serving domestic violence victims if it weren’t for our dedicated volunteers and corporations, like McCarthy, that support our mission. So thank you, McCarthy, for being a generous and dedicated supporter.
If you are interested in learning more ways that you or your organization can get involved with The Women’s Safe House please email our Volunteer Manager, Monica DuBois or call 314-772-4535.
Time is the most precious gift you can give and by volunteering with TWSH you will be making a difference that you can see!
