I have donations but would like to give them directly to the women and children. Is this possible?

Since the individuals and families we serve are often transitioning out of dangerous situations, we ensure that their identities are kept confidential. Therefore, it is not possible for donors to meet the women and children who will benefit from their contributions.

I have additional questions, who can I contact?

We would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. Please email or call 919-865-1601 to speak to a representative from InterAct about your donation.
