Zappos.com Visits the Center for Women and Families - Shepherdsville, Kentucky - March 2010

In the beginning of March, Zappos.com's KY Fulfillment Center visited The Center for Women and Families at their downtown Louisville, Kentucky location. The visit was a wonderful inside look at how the Center for Women and Families, like their motto, is more than just a shelter. President/CEO Denise Troutman was a breath of fresh air as she discussed what the center is doing to help victims of intimate partner abuse or sexual violence become survivors. The CFWF has supportive services, community education and cooperative partnerships that foster hope, promote self-sufficiency and rebuild lives.

Zappos.com believed so strongly in the mission of The Center for Women and Families that they adopted a family room for a year. When adopting-a-room through the CFWF the onetime donation goes toward any necessities the family may need when living in that room (sheets, towels, etc.). Outside each adopted room you will see a plaque that is inscribed with the names of individual people, companies like Zappos.com, and even book clubs that wanted to help. President/CEO Denise Troutman did point out the emotional impact it makes on a woman knowing that someone would donate to keep their family safe, give hope, and just simply care. Zappos feels so fortunate to have been able to spend time with the President/CEO and staff of this facility that offers more than just a shelter for the women in their area.
