Independence House Requesting Your Help with ‘Shelter Shower’

HYANNIS – Independence House has been awarded a 10 year contract by the Commonwealth’s Department of Public Health to offer a confidential emergency Domestic and Sexual Violence Shelter for survivors who need to leave their living situations to assure their safety starting this October.

The organization is working to get things ready for the first guests and are looking for some help from the community in making them feel comfortable.

Independence House is asking that you take part in their “Shelter Shower” to meet a portion of the needs of the new facility. According to the non-profit these contributions will directly support individuals and families who are in immediate crisis and fleeing to find safety.

Your generosity will help to establish a warm, welcoming and safe environment for the temporary stay of survivors who are in critical need of comfort, justice, and safety.

Officials at Independence House have set up registries at local and online retailers including Bed Bath and Beyond,, and Best Buy.

They will also be hosting a “Shelter Shower” reception on Saturday September 16th at CapeSpace on Independence Drive in Hyannis. Gifts may be dropped off there from 2 to 4 PM. Light refreshments will also be served.
