Community Counts gives you a chance to learn more about the people and the organizations that have a positive impact on our community. This week we feature the Shelter for Help in Emergency and their "Design House" event.
Millie Winstead joined CBS19's Bo Sykes to talk more about the shelter, which has been a part of the Charlottesville community for over 30 years.
The shelter provides care for victims of domestic violence, as well as community outreach that includes counseling, legal assistance and general work to raise awareness about the issue of domestic violence.
Their mission is to end domestic violence in the Charlottesville community.
The shelter has an upcoming fundraiser event called "Design House" The event allows over a dozen designers to showcase their work as they renovate and redecorate a home.
People interested in the event can purchase tickets to tour the house for $20. The event begins Saturday, May 8 and runs through Sunday, May 16.
