Volunteer Leadership Opportunities

For the second year, Shelterhouse Midland Restaurant Week will take over
our county, empowering survivors, motivating community members to dine out for all their meals, and driving traffic to your local establishments.

For 8 days (April 22 – April 29), local restaurants, cafes, and bars will
promote special menus, offerings, great deals, and unique food-themed
events – all while raising funds for our mission:
to empower survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

And we want you to take part!
