Chains Interrupted is primarily private donor funded. No matter how big or small, monetary donations help support our mission, purchase supplies for our survivor support group, and continue providing programs and services to organizations around Eastern Iowa. We welcome donations via Venmo (@ChainsInterrupted), Elegant Repeats, Stuff Etc. Cedar Rapids and ReVibes in Ely.
Annually we take donations for our “Handbags of Hope” sale, where we sell gently used, high-brand purses from donors who want to help support our mission.
