Volunteer with us!

    Dawn Center relies on Grant Funding, Fundraising, and Donations from the community to provide services at no cost to survivors and their families.  We are proud that our administration operating costs are low which allows the largest percentage of funds to go directly to survivors we serve in the way of support services.  We are always looking to gain community partners who are willing to donate on a regular or one-time basis.


Monetary donations are always accepted and help fund services such as transportation, daily shelter necessities, and office supplies. You can Paypal these directly to us at the top of this page. 


Themed donations for holiday celebrations and back to school are always welcome. Our Shelter and Outreach participants can always use a gift to brighten their day. Holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's, Valentine's Day, Easter, Back to School, and Birthdays are celebrated at our various locations and mean a lot to the families we serve. To adopt our organization for a holiday, contact our Administrative Office at 352-639-0892 or email giving@dawncenter.org .


If you have an item from our list please contact our Administration office to make arrangements for drop off at one of our drop off locations. 352-639-0892
