Summary

During this project, we have decided to work with the Advocates Women’s Shelter. We asked how they could best bene?t from us, and we agreed upon fundraising to buy them new computers for their skills labs.

We accomplish this through education, shelter and support services.”(theadvocatesorg.org) These computers will help them develop the skills needed to ?nd a job, and further succeed in rebuilding their lives.
