2013 - January: Good news from Our Second Annual Fundraiser: Donors Make the Future Brighter

Dear Friends of the Refuge,


Since 2005 you have helped pay computer teacher salaries, replaced old computers, funded school uniforms and Vallues provided school supplies. You have donated funds for urgent medical needs and sponsored Buen Trato, a program that is helping break the cycle of violence that the girls have experienced. You made possible the renovation of deteriorating roofs and buildings, insuring that the Refuge will stand strong for many years. You supported a vital infant development program that strengthens mother and child bonds and stimulates the intelligence of the infants.


Our second annual fundraiser held from November to December of 2012 resulted in individual donations that totaled $12,686.76! As a result, we are able to continue our support of the major programs of the Refuge for 2013.

 07 Computer classes

These are the programs:


  • The computer program that builds job skills
  • Tutoring and school supplies to help the girls continue their education
  • Emergency health care needs
  • The infant Stimulation Program

You are a part of this beautiful work and are making a difference in the lives of the young mothers. We are heartened by your trust and are making every penny count.


Thank you.


Sr. Yvette Mallow, OSB
