A domestic violence shelter in Trumbull County is in need of winter coat donations for women and children.

Families falling on difficult financial times and those in domestic violence situations right now are in need of support.

Lauren Webb, director of Someplace Safe domestic violence services, says the shelter is at full capacity with 32 women and children under their roof.

"They are financially having difficulty," Webb said of the people coming through the doors at the shelter. "We're having to step up and do more with less."

Webb says the shelter can accept any size coats for women and children of all ages.

They have pregnant women and infants all the way to older child ages staying with them at any given time.

The best time to drop off a coat is between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays at 1370 Tod Ave. NW, Warren, Ohio, 44485.

Webb says they'll use any donations throughout the winter season.

Webb says capacity went up tremendously after covid restrictions set in. Now that the shelter has a web chat for victims to reach out, demand has only grown.

"Since then and with everybody else, the needs have increased. For everyone that's walking across our  doorstep or reaching out to us for services, we're having to meet those needs that we did previously and then exceed those because of the state that everybody's going through right now," she said.
