Stock The Shelves

Our emergency shelter is the center of our supportive services. From our bedrooms to our playrooms, each area of our shelters plays such an important role each day for our families.

You can help our clients feel at home by replenishing much-needed supplies for the Shill Family Building.

Prioritizing the safety of our clients and community due to COVID-19, donations are being accepted Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10:00-10:30 a.m. at 693 East Ave. Rochester, NY 14607. For more information, email us at WishList@WillowCenterNY.org or call (585) 232-5200 ext. 261.
