Children in New Hope for Women’s Transitional Housing units recently received backpacks filled with school supplies through West Bay Rotary’s Backpack Program. Transitional housing provides victims of domestic violence with up to two years of housing as they work on career, educational and financial goals. Families often flee their circumstances with little time to gather belongings and with few financial resources. Individuals and families in transitional housing often need assistance with providing for birthdays, holidays and other life events. Anyone interested in assisting these families should contact New Hope for Women’s Transitional Services Advocate, Melissa Mason, at (207) 594-2128 x102 or mmason@newhopeforwomen.org.
