One Less Worry helps New Hope

New Hope for Women recently worked with One Less Worry to provide totes filled with personal care items for victims of domestic violence. The tote project resulted in donations of over $1,000 to our agency, money that will be well spent on much-needed items for those who choose to flee dangerous circumstances.

One Less Worry (onelessworry.me) provides essential grooming products to 23 Knox County nonprofits. Items they reliably distribute include pads, tampons, bladder pads, toilet paper, toothpaste and soap. For the last six Decembers, One Less Worry has donated totes filled with grooming products to New Hope for Women in addition to providing grooming products to us monthly.

New Hope for Women recognizes that choosing to leave a situation of domestic violence is a process that requires planning. Advocates work carefully with clients to provide resources, assist victims in accessing personal supports and empower clients to determine what will work best for them. We invite anyone and everyone to contact our 24/7 helpline as needed. Services are free and confidential. An advocate is always available to speak to those in difficult circumstances and to assist concerned others.

New Hope for Women offices can be reached at 594-2128 or at P.O. Box A, Rockland, ME 04841. Our 24/7 helpline is available at 800-522-3304.
