Cell Phones

Unused cell phones do double duty!!

Unused cell phones that can only be used to dial 911 are given to women to use in emergency situations.   This gives a woman in a precarious situation, peace of mind knowing she can access police at a moment’s notice.
Phones that can’t be distributed in our center are used as a fund-raiser, being sent out to be refurbished and used at other centers. We can use any and all cell phones. They need not have batteries or chargers.  Simply bring the phones collected to the Crisis Shelter at 1218 West State Street, New Castle, PA.

We would invite you to place a collection box at your place of business, school or church, then bring phones to the Crisis Shelter.  Please call 724-652-9206 for more information.


“I enrolled back in college and have been named to the Dean’s List each semester. I am working toward a degree in Social Work, so that one day I can look into the teary eyes of a broken woman and tell her without hesitation that she can have the life she dreams about; she can live without fear; she can find the strength to do it, because I too, was once a teary-eyed, broken woman who found help at the Crisis Shelter.”
