Notes from the Executive Director

Thank you to ConocoPhillips

The LeeShore Center is very grateful to ConocoPhillips for their generous grant contribution of $5,000, which will help us provide violence prevention education to youth grades K-12 during 2015.  ConocoPhillips is a long supporter of LeeShore and our violence prevention efforts targeting youth.  With their help, during the last school year LeeShore provided 140 violence prevention education classes to 2,943 youth.   Helping children learn about healthy relationships, warning signs of abuse and ways to keep safe takes a community effort and we’re grateful ConocoPhillips plays an important role in that effort by supporting our mission to promote healthy families and a violence-free community!

Thank you to Sportsman's Warehouse

The LeeShore Center would like to give our thanks to Sportsman’s Warehouse for donating the bucket and silent auction proceeds to our agency from their 4th Annual Ladies Night in February.  Thank you also to the vendors who donated the gifts for the auctions.  A total of $3,151 was donated to help us end domestic violence within our community.   We greatly appreciate your support!

Thank you to

As The LeeShore Center celebrates its 30th year of keeping domestic violence victims and their families pets’ safe from harm, we are deeply grateful to RedRover for the $3,000 grant award to help us build a new outdoor animal kennel at our emergency shelter facility! 

RedRover is a national nonprofit organization that annually awards grant funding to domestic violence shelters throughout the county so that shelters can create a safe place to house victims’ pets. You can learn more about RedRover at

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, as high as 85 percent of pet-owning women entering domestic violence shelters reported their abuser also injured, threatened, or killed the family pets.  For some domestic violence victims, staying in an abusive home is the only option if they are afraid to leave their pets and there’s no place safe to take them.  

RedRover understands that when there’s violence in the home, everyone’s at risk, including family pets. So thank you RedRover for supporting domestic violence shelters and the work we do to help victims and their pets stay safe!
