Sarah’s Inn was founded in 1980 by a group of concerned women in River Forest and Oak Park, to address a lack of services for victims of domestic violence and their families. The agency has since grown to become one of the largest and most comprehensive domestic violence agencies serving Chicago and 22 surrounding West Cook County suburban communities. The agency currently operates with its hub in Forest Park, and seven off-site locations through partner agencies and area courthouses throughout Chicago and West Cook County.

What to Donate
-Gift cards in denominations of $15-$25 (from stores that carry groceries, toiletries, household items, school supplies, etc.)
Why Gift Cards: Gift cards allow the families we serve access to getting their basic human needs met. Families often leave with very little and struggle to meet their families’ basic needs: groceries, household items, clothing, and medication. Gift cards in small amounts offer flexibility, security and options to our clients, allowing them to purchase the items their families need to most to stay safe and healthy.
-Non-perishable food items (canned food, boxes of cereal, snack bars, pasta, pasta sauce, juice boxes, rice, dried beans, fruit cups, other non-perishable food items, etc.)
-Full sized dental hygiene items (tooth paste, tooth brushes, floss, mouthwash, etc.)
-Full sized personal care & toiletry items (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, feminine care products, etc.)
-Paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, tissue, etc.)
Please avoid purchasing/donating hotel, sample, or economy sized items
