Kanda Cares - Kanda Community Foundation

The Kanda Community Foundation (KCF) focuses on addressing unmet community needs in health, education, economic development, community development and support programs. Kanda Cares is a non-profit organization that helps victims of domestic violence reestablish themselves in new permanent homes.

When an abuser takes control of or limits access to shared or individual assets or limits the current or future earning potential of the victim as a strategy of power and control, that is economic abuse. In economic abuse, the abuser separates the victim from their own resources, rights and choices, isolating the victim financially and creating a forced dependency for the victim and other family members (Source: NCADV. (2015). Facts about domestic violence and economic abuse. Retrieved from www.ncadv.org.) Often, victims must escape their abusers with only the clothes on their back and are forced to live in shelters until new housing can be secured.

That's why Kanda Cares is such an important resource to domestic abuse victims. Kanda Cares collects clothes, luggage, furniture, home goods, etc to help victims build a new home free of abuse. We provide support through necessary items (clothing, furniture, home goods, etc.) that are often financially impossible for victims of domestic violence and economic abuse. All items are donated by caring members of our community and are provided to survivors at no cost to them.

We are requesting donations to cover fixed overhead costs such as leasing of storage space for donated items, government filing fees (for tax-exempt status), and the costs of picking up donated goods. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
