HUGS Bags

"HUGS" stands for the thoughts we are sending - Healing Understanding and Great Strength.

For over ten years, we have been in partnership with county agencies that assist survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.  In Essex County, SAVE (Sexual Assault & Violence Education) of Essex County, has been supplied with "comfort kits" and volunteer support for the sexual assault response teams.  The comfort kits are delivered to a woman at the hospital after a sexual assault is reported, and provide a basic change of clothes, toiletries and sundries.  In Union County, YWCA Eastern Union County has been receiving the comfort kits which are distributed to women seeking emergency shelter.  At both agencies, employees and volunteers provide emergency and ongoing support to women escaping violence.
