FACT: Although there is a high correlation between alcohol, or other substance abuse, and domestic violence, it is not the cause.

Working Against Violence Inc. has been very fortunate to have the support of our community behind us. WAVI refers all gently used clothing, furniture and stuffed toys to the Cornerstone Mission Thrift Store located at 401 11th Street. The Cornerstone Mission Thrift Store has partnered with us to assist our clients with these needs; the items that we are accepting are listed below. For security reasons, we accept donations at the back entrance Tuesday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please call us ahead of time if you are bringing a larger donation. Food may be dropped off at anytime. If these times do not work for you, please call in advance to set a time. 

Thank you for understanding and for making a difference in the lives of victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
