With its recent $500,000 contribution, Fisher Island Gives aims to support the work of Lotus House Women’s Shelter by offering supportive shelter and holistic services for women and children experiencing homelessness.

“Preparing for and responding to the threat of the coronavirus have presented challenges never before imagined in our work and to the health and safety of those we shelter and our dedicated team,” said Constance Collins, Lotus House executive director.

“Thanks to Fisher Island Gives, we are able not only to continue our essential services but expand our programming and advance the health and safety of those we serve. It is impossible to express in words how deeply meaningful this gift is to the precious children and families we shelter.”

The shelter in Overtown is home to about 500 residents.

“Lotus House is an amazing organization and we are thrilled that we are able to provide support for them,” said Michael Rabinowitz of Fisher Island Gives.
