ABOUT OUR CHARITABLE PARTNERS:
DAWN protects women and children from domestic abuse, providing shelter, support and empowerment so they can build secure and happy lives.
WMFHA has supported the efforts of DAWN since 2006 through our annual Chili Cook-Off Charity Event. To date, we have raised almost $200,000 for DAWN.
Childhood trauma and adversity are the root cause of the most urgent and costly problems that plague our children, families, and community. Childhaven meets families in all places where they live, learn, and play, including: early learning centers, pediatric settings, community centers, elementary schools, and home visits. Childhaven is staffed by a dynamic and diverse team of therapists, care coordinators, teachers, and parent partners.
Since 2015, we have raised over $152,000 for Childhaven at our annual Holiday Giving Gala

Move For Hunger works with over 700 relocation companies across the United States and Canada to collect non-perishable food items and deliver them to food banks. Overall, they have delivered more than 8 million pounds of food! These food donations account for more than 6.6 million meals for people in need.
When our residents move out they often leave non-perishable food behind. Before Move For Hunger existed, this food was often just thrown out. Since beginning our partnership with Move for Hunger in 2017, WMFHA members have collected over 8,800 pounds
