We are closing our Domestic Violence Shelter in Tuscaloosa due to lack of funding after nearly 30 years of service. All women and children currently living at King’s Home in Tuscaloosa County are being relocated to the King’s Home Shelby County location or finding other assistance.
We suffered a devastating loss of funding in December 2017 when America’s Thrift Store ended our 30 year relationship resulting in a $750,000 annual loss. Despite our efforts, we have not been able to generate needed funds to keep the Tuscaloosa Campus open.
What is Needed?
We provide a 2-year structured and goal oriented program for our women and children fleeing domestic violence. Operating expenses for our Tuscaloosa Campus average around $400,000 annually. We need $1,000,000 in sustainable funds to reopen the Tuscaloosa Campus to insure our women and children are able to complete the program.
How Can You Help?
We need your support! For 45 years our mission has been to provide hope, healing, and refuge for abused, abandoned, and neglected youth, women, and children fleeing domestic violence in the state of Alabama. We are devastated to close our Tuscaloosa campus.
