Shelter Needs

The Franklin County Women’s Shelter depends on the supportive Frankfort community to keep us going. We separate our needs into 3 groups: donations of time, donations of items and supplies, and financial contributions.


The Franklin County Women’s Shelter is looking for a additional volunteers to help us meet the needs of our residents.  We have a wide variety of volunteer needs. We need women who are willing to spend a 4 hour shift in the evenings or on the weekends at the Shelter.  We also need women who are willing to spend one night per month at the Shelter in the Volunteer Quarters.  We need volunteers to help with transportation of clients, food boxes, and household supplies.  We need volunteers to help in the office during regular office hours. We can be fairly flexible.  If you have time and want to give to the Shelter, please contact us. It is a great way to give back to the community.

Items and Supplies:

The Shelter accepts limited donations of household items and supplies in good condition that we provide to clients in need. If you have at item you’d like to donate to us, please call us or send an email.  We always need items such as paper products (toilet paper, paper towels), light bulbs (60 watt or below), cleaning supplies, coffee, copy paper and other office supplies.  If you have supplies you’d like to donate, drop them by the Shelter Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

Financial Contributions:

We do graciously accept any financial donations, no matter how small or large, in the form of cash or a check dropped off or mailed to the Shelter.  We can also accept online donations.

If you are having trouble finding the perfect gift for someone or if you want to remember someone who has passed away, make a donation in their name to the shelter. We typically will send you and the gift recipient a card.

All donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
