Sonshine Community Services
Sonshine Community Services is a ministry that provides a safe space and shelter for women and children who are escaping family violence and abuse. They help women and children transform their lives by providing day homes, empowering families to move towards healthy and safe relationships, and educating communities in order to help them become safer and healthier places to live.
Foothills helps by sponsoring a suite for women in need (volunteers help to clean and stock it), as well as donating financially, donating to the Bless Drive food and personal hygiene items, and helping women and children transition in and out of Sonshine homes.
