Many families staying at domestic violence shelters suffer from food scarcity, what the USDA defines as a lack of reliable access to adequate and nutritious food for an active, healthy life for all household members. According to mapthemealgap.com, in Maricopa County there are over 570,000 people who fit this criterion. Your donation can also help children in these families learn about growing and cooking nutritious foods and provide a safe place for the communal therapeutic activity of gardening.
CPLC De Colores serves the community by providing support to survivors of domestic violence and their children. Residents of the shelter find stable housing, become financially independent, undergo personal development.
The shelter also hosts a youth program that ensures the success of youth academically and with personal growth while at the shelter.
