The Latimer House has seen a 30 percent increase in domestic
violence calls over the last four years and until now, the shelter was having to pull out trundle beds and cram multiple families in one room.
But recently, the shelter got a grant for a new safehouse but that safehouse is empty.
The Latimer House is collecting household items for the new safehouse, items like:
-Linens: Twin bedding, towels, kitchen linens
-Kitchen Items: Small appliances, dishes, silverware, pots and pans
-Electronics: TV's, DVD players, stereos
-Decorative Items: Lamps, paintings
