From Father Jim:

This Lent, we will again support the Women's Shelter, located here, in Norman. A list of items needed by the shelter will be included in this weekend's bulletin. The shelter exists to help women (and their children) safely exit abusive relationships. Please be generous. Cash donations are always appropriate.


Norman’s Shelter for Battered Women provides safe, temporary housing for women and their children who have been victimized by domestic violence, sexual violence, or stalking. The Shelter fills an urgent need in Norman; no other local group or organization provides these services. At any given time, the Women’s Shelter is housing 16-18 women and 10-12 children.
 
The Shelter staff also assists women in finding more permanent living arrangements and tries to provide the basic necessities that most women have to leave behind such as pots and pans, dishes, bedding, towels and other household items. The Shelter’s current list of critical needs includes:
 
Silverware (Forks and Spoons)
Pots and Pans
Cooking Utensils
Knives
Coffee Pots
Can Openers
Toasters
Microwave ovens
Shower Curtains with Hooks
Bed Pillows (new)
Irons
Twin Size/Full Size Sheets
Towels
Electric Skillets
Dish Sets
Walmart Gift Cards
Phone Cards 

 
For additional information or if you have questions, or if you are or know someone who may be in need of assistance, you can reach the shelter at (405) 701-5497 (business line).  
 

We believe that women have the right to live in safety, to be treated with dignity, to make choices and to hope.
