Examples of Groups of Church Women Supporting Transition Houses for Battered Women and Children
The following examples are drawn from church women’s own accounts of their group support for the transition houses located in the areas where they live.
Reflective Questions to ask of yourself: Are there some ways that I might support the women’s shelter in my area? How might our local congregation (or women’s groups within it) partner with the women’s shelter in our area?
Questions to ask your pastor: Has our congregation, or women’s groups within it, ever asked how they might be of assistance to the local women’s shelter? Has the director of the local women’s shelter ever been asked to speak in our church, or to the church board?
