The Women’s Care Cottage in North Hollywood should be celebrating its 25th anniversary, however instead they may be shutting their doors on December 15.  They have had a dramatic drop in funding  and need $300,000-$500,000 in order to remain open. According to sources, they are in deficit of $400 a day. One of the children in danger of being displaced is a 5 year old cancer patient.

Founded in 1984, the non-profit organization has helped more than 50,000 homeless women and children throughout the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles.  The number of women and children the shelter has served doubled to nearly 4000 this year alone.

Their programs  include the Cottage (a 90 day emergency shelter in the form of a 2 -story house), resource center, career guidance, wellness program and transitional housing, have been lifelines to getting women back on their feet.

They are looking for all types of donations.  For more information,

    Thanks for this article, Karen. We have been sponsoring families through them for several years, and it has been the most fulfilling and fun charitable donation we’ve ever made. Our eight-year-old daughter even gets into it, picking out the presents for the younger kids.

    Even with the belt-tightening that’s going on in our household this year, we’re so thankful that we are still able to sponsor one of the women from the Care Cottage.

    Thanks for this post, calling attention to this dire situation. This is a very valuable organization in the San Fernando Valley.
