The Shelter is extremely pleased to announce a significant gift from the Clark Family Foundation, Inc., a family Foundation based in Naples, Florida, which supports organizations dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of children.

The gift from the Clark Family Foundation was awarded to The Shelter to fund one year’s salary for the Youth & Development Advocate in The Shelter’s After School Care Program; to support the purchase of new air conditioning units at The Shelter’s main campus in Naples; to purchase the land for The Shelly Stayer campus and the construction of a children’s playground/courtyard located in the Human Trafficking Wing of the Shelly Stayer Shelter for Victims of Human Trafficking & Domestic Violence. The new shelter is slated for construction in Immokalee to serve survivors in the Eastern portion of Collier County. Click here for more information.
