The Cocoon Shelter remembers David C. Miller at its annual fundraiser.
On Thursday evening, October 10, 2013, The Cocoon Shelter will hold its annual fundraising event, an Empty Place at the Table, at Nazareth Hall beginning at 6:30. In addition to good food, camaraderie, and silent auction, there will be remembrance of David C.  Miller as the Vice President of the Cocoon Board and as a significant community leader. Anyone wishing to attend the event should contact the Cocoon Shelter for details and reservations, which should be received by Monday, September 30. You can contact the office at 419-373-1730 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
.During the last year, with the tremendous support of community members, the Bowling Green Community Foundation, and the Toledo Community Foundation, the Cocoon Shelter expanded services in Wood County well beyond provision of shelter. In fact, about 90% of services provided to victims of abuse and their children in 2012-2013 did not include shelter. Instead, they included 24 hour advocacy, support, and crisis intervention, assistance obtaining crime victim compensation, protection orders, medical care, meeting basic needs, developing financial literacy, economic empowerment, and support groups. In addition, services were expanded so that Cocoon staff now have access to office space in Perrysburg and North Baltimore so that services can be provided more effectively throughout the county.
Your support makes all the difference; we hope to see you in October.
