When caring for our patients, we sometimes find individuals who have health issues caused by the violent actions of family members or close friends. I want to use the $1,000 in Pay It Forward funds to help women and children facing these challenges. Clara House, the local women’s shelter, needs an alarm system for the house. That costs $1,800. They also need cell phones that women can use in emergencies.
When Clara House was established in Greensboro in 1978, it was only the second shelter in North Carolina. Today, Family Service of the Piedmont runs Clara House, which can provide temporary accommodations for as many as 26 women and children at a time.
