Please participate with CAPERS this holiday season with the 27th Annual Hickman House Giving Tree. Every year CAPERS sponsors this event to help those in the neighborhood who are less fortunate than ourselves. The CAPERS Giving Tree benefits Hickman House, a local transitional housing program for women and children who are recovering from domestic violence. Participating is as easy as 1-2-3:
1. Choose a star from our tree at our location in West Seattle.
2. Purchase the wish
3. Return to CAPERS by 12/22, just in time for holiday giving (no giftwrap needed!)
More about the Hickman House:
Hickman House is a confidentially located program for adult survivors of domestic violence with children, who have become homeless as a result of domestic violence.
We provide fully furnished individual apartments, comprehensive case management services for the entire family, financial empowerment education, a children’s program, safety planning skills and housing search support. Hickman House has ten apartments for families, staff offices, a children’s playroom and an outdoor courtyard.
Established in 1988, Hickman House aims to provide the additional time and supportive services that domestic violence survivors and their children needed after 14-30 days in an emergency shelter. We have served hundreds of families over the years. We continue to try and support families during their tenure and after they leave to provide the best chance of staying safe.
