How your Support Helps

Whether you give money, volunteer your time or even donate a pair of winter boots, your support can change people’s lives. See for yourself why supporting the Domestic Violence Resource Center (formerly CAAW) is so important.

Our Generous Supporters

Join them in rebuilding safe and hopeful lives for victims of family violence.

Private foundation support from the E.L. Cord Foundation, Terry Lee Wells Foundation, William N. Pennington Foundation and others made the purchase and renovation of our TH2 facility a possibility, and more available transitional housing for our clients a reality.

Ways You Can Donate Financially

  • Write a check
  • Attend the Annual Hannah Humanitarian Award event
  • Participate in a holiday donation drive
  • Participate in the United Way Donor Choice Giving Campaign
  • Consider making a bequest to Domestic Violence Resource Center in your will
  • Ask about establishing a monthly installment donation plan

Donate Necessities

Due to recent Nevada/Washoe County COVID-19 concerns and to comply with Governor Steve Sisolak’s “Stay at Home 2.0” order, we have suspended the acceptance of used or gently used donated material goods for the donation room until further notice. It is our hope that by decreasing the traffic at our Vassar Street facility we will reduce the likelihood that our clients, staff/volunteers and donors will be potentially exposed to the virus. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you as a community donor, and we thank you for your patience.

Another way to support us at this time is to purchase much needed items off of our Amazon Wish List. Unfortunately, Amazon does not provide us with donor information associated with donations made through our wish list. Please contact Katie Melkonian at to confirm that you have made a donation. We appreciate donors taking this extra step so that we can properly acknowledge their donations!
