In a critical situation, a family fled to safety from domestic violence with no time to pack or bring basic necessities and found themselves having to start a new household from scratch. A client of the Center of Opening Doors for Families that serves the local Latino population in Wappingers Falls, the family now has basic household necessities, including kitchen supplies, mattress pads, curtains and sheets that the Center’s representative found for them at United Way’s Day of Sharing.
