Notes from the Executive Director

A personal word from the Executive Director May 15th, 2020

During these challenging times we’ve all had to adjust to a new way of interacting and conducting business, whether work or personal. For many in the nonprofit world this has meant reducing services or making changes that are hard to make, particularly if those changes affect or have consequences on the people served by that nonprofit.


 As a victim service agency providing advocacy, support, and safe shelter to those suffering from domestic violence and sexual abuse, we are well aware of how critical it is to ensure victims have the support and help they need. Reports of increased domestic violence during the pandemic in some parts of the nation and state are not surprising but we also need to remember there are some communities where there has been a decrease in reporting – and that’s frightening. 


Being isolated is bad enough, but when you’re isolated with the person who is physically or sexually abusing you and you can’t reach out or call for help the consequences can be devastating. Although The LeeShore Center has had to make some adjustments in how we conduct business during the pandemic we continue to be here for those in need of safe shelter and advocacy.  


Our crisis line is available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are unsafe and need help, please call 283-7257.

Please note:

Due to CDC recommendations and to help mitigate COVID-19, we will not be accepting drop-off donations until further notice. 


Additionally, the agency Clothes Closet is closed to the public until further notice and all community support groups are cancelled.


For those needing safe shelter or to talk to an advocate, we ask that you call the crisis line at 283-7257.  


We appreciate your support and understanding. For those who wish to make a donation to the agency during this time, you may do so by clicking on the button at the bottom of this page.

Pick. Click.Give

We know it’s an uncertain time here in Alaska, and for nonprofits, just as much. That’s why we wanted to reach out to you one more time, as we’re coming up to the final deadline of June 17th for changing your Pick.Click.Give. We would be incredibly thankful if you would consider adding to your donation, if you are able.
