Beginning January 1, 2017, Alaska's residents were given the opportunity to choose to select a portion of their 2017 Permanent Fund Dividend to go to their chosen non-profit.

The LeeShore Center is proud to be a participating agency with the Pick.Click.Give program. You have until March 31st to designate a portion of your PFD to a chosen non-profit. If you have already filed for your PFD, you can still go back and make a pledge to LeeShore.

We appreciate your support! You are making a difference in the lives of many people.

Thank you for your support!

Notes from the Executive Director

Central peninsula community generous, always there to help

On behalf of the board of directors and staff of The LeeShore Center, I would like to extend thanks and appreciation to the many community members, businesses and service agencies who generously donated time and assistance to our agency during 2016.

Your continued support and caring makes a difference in the lives of victims experiencing domestic violence and sexual assault. During the year over 4600 volunteer hours were given to our agency to assist with projects, awareness and fundraising events, violence prevention efforts, maintenance and repairs and staff support. With your help, The LeeShore Center provided emergency shelter and transitional housing to 201 women and children for a total of 10,886 bed nights, answered 947 crisis calls and assisted 421 individuals with walk-in advocacy services.

And to those who contributed in-kind and/or financial donations, thank you so much! Your donations and support help us ensure victim needs were met and program services are available.

To all, thank you for helping make our community a safer place to live. We wish each of you a safe and peaceful holiday season and many blessings throughout the coming year!

Cheri Smith, Executive Director
