Capital Campaign: 2024-2027

 

Women’s Advocates is happy to announce a significant advancement in our mission to support victim-survivors of domestic violence. We’re raising $14.25 million to acquire two new buildings to double our number of shelter beds. Thanks to an extremely generous grant of $8.7 million from Minnesota Office of Economic Opportunity and over $400,000 in private donations, we have raised over 60% of our goal! This funding brings us one step closer to achieving our ambitious goal of $14.25 million, which will provide funds for planning, design, acquisition, renovation, and 5-years of programming at the new facility.

With your support, we will create 19 new apartments dedicated to victim-survivors and their children, totaling 58 beds. The buildings will offer a mix of ADA compliant 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-bedroom units, providing diverse accommodations for survivors of all genders, sexualities, and abilities. Additionally, we are proud to announce that this new facility will allow victim-survivors and their pets to live together in their rooms, providing invaluable comfort and support during times of crisis, while keeping the entire family safe.
