Supporting families of domestic violence situations, homelessness and mental health.

Help Us Help Your Community

Community Sponsorship Program Opportunities

We are always looking for community-minded people and local business heroes who would love to support Defenders For Hope by helping us care for our community.

Sponsorship Options

We have several community sponsorship program options to suit everyone’s budget … and we’d love your help. Whether it is providing items to include in our Support Packs, items for our Food Drive Fundraisers or financial donations – your support is needed and greatly appreciated.

We support those in need with our Defenders Packs, Sheild Packs, Start-up Packs, Dignity Packs, Personal Packs, help with food and financial aid, counseling, workshops, showers, washing, transport, helping to find accommodation, and just being here to offer support and a listening ear over a cup of coffee.

All donations are tax-deductible and you will be advertised on our social media and through our networks as a sponsor (if you wish) … and the best part … you will be helping those in most need, in our community.

Please send us a private message on our Facebook page or send us a message here if you are interested in sponsoring us or would like more information.
