UUCLB Special Collection November 2019 Women Shelter of Long Beach

Since 1977 Women Shelter of Long Beach has helped thousands of families overcome the trauma caused by domestic abuse. WSLB assists victims and their children by providing safe shelter and supportive services including emergency shelter, a 24-hour crisis hotline, counseling, social services support, legal and health advocacy, family services, and much more.

Each year WSLB’s hotline receives more than 1,500 domestic violence crisis calls. Trained advocates are available to respond to crisis calls from women and men and teens and young adults. WSLB also assists LGBTQ victims involved in domestic and intimate partner abuse/violence. Advocates provide support, assistance, and emergency referral services.

Our special collection takes place on the second Sunday of November, but you may donate to the Women Shelter of Long Beach until the last Sunday in November by marking your envelope or check with “Special Collection.”
