Our first bouquet donation location was Safe Avenues, a domestic violence shelter in Willmar, Minnesota. Safe Avenues does more then provide emergency shelter (which in itself is a huge task.) They also provide advocacy, education, and parenting time services. According to Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women "Domestic Violence is the leading cause of housing instability. Housing is the #1 unmet need for domestic violence survivors." I love that this organization exists, and can meet these needs in outstate Minnesota. If you would like more information or would like to donate or volunteer or learn more about this amazing organization please go to willmarshelter.com .
If you are in an unsafe situation and need emergency services they have a free, confidential 24-hour crisis line, please give them a call at 1 800 792-4210.
