Voices of Hope (voicesofhopelincoln.org) is preparing for winter by providing many resources for those in need, but they need your help. This winter, consider donating coats of all sizes or gift cards to families needing warm clothing. Voices of Hope will also be holding an “Adopt a Family” program starting December 9, where you can purchase and donate Christmas gifts for a family in need. Forms are available at the Voices of Hope office in Lincoln for those interested in adopting a family this holiday season.

In addition, those needing support can access the Voices of Hope Crisis Line throughout the holidays. There will always be access to help, no matter the time of year.

Voices of Hope provides free and confidential services for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and incest. Last year, the organization answered more than 8,000 calls from individuals needing help or information related to domestic violence and sexual assault, and assisted more than 2,500 victims and survivors through services such as safety planning, counseling, protection order assistance, support groups, and legal and medical advocacy. Anyone wanting additional information or ways to support Voices of Hope can contact Resource Development Coordinator Yaquelin Lizarraga at yaquelin@voicesofhopelincoln.org.
