The women of Winnie's Place are able to shop at Winnie's Wishes free to get the needed clothing for themselves and their children.    After completing the program at Winnie's Place and upon starting their households, the women can come to the resale store and pick out linens, furniture, pictures and more all at no cost to help start up their new homes.    The community can help by stopping by Winnie's Wishes to SHOP, DONATE or VOLUNTEER.    


If you've donated directly to Winnie's Place in the past either directly to the shelter or by dropping off at Churches United you can continue to do so in the same way.    Either way, you are benefiting the women and children of Winnie's Place and we THANK YOU!
