We Support Hope Harbor Home
The Brunswick County Democratic Women have supported Hope Harbor Home for several years. It is the only domestic violence shelter for women in our county. Its many programs promote nonviolence in our communities, provide legal advocacy, and involve local social services for clients. The BCD Women conduct two fundraisers a year for Hope Harbor Home, one coinciding with Independence Day, the other, Thanksgiving. Any and all can oppose domestic violence by donating, volunteering, and/or shopping at one of their three thrift stores (in Bolivia, Leland, and Oak Island). Visit their website at hopeharborhome.org. Office: 910-754-5726. Crisis Line: 910-754-5856
