Sanctuary For Families

A portion of the purchase price of every Sharp Hill Designs' bag is donated to Sanctuary for Families, a leading provider in New York City of shelter, counseling, legal and economic stability services to survivors of domestic violence. As a young lawyer in the early 1990's, Kate was asked to work on a matter for a new organization co-founded by the wife of a name partner in Kate's firm.   Eager to learn more about the laws governing nonprofits, Kate enthusiastically accepted the matter.  She also had a friend who had been abused by her husband and was therefore drawn to Sanctuary's mission.  Within a year, she had joined the board.  For more than 25 years, Sanctuary has been helping thousands of victims and their children build safe lives through a range of high quality services.
