How To Help

Sponsor The Clothesline Project - October 2023

Sponsorship Opportunities 

The Grace Smith House Clothesline Project is a powerful visual display of t-shirts created by survivors of domestic violence, or their loved ones. Each shirt is decorated to represent a particular victim's experience. This emotional expression is part of a national movement designed to bear witness to these experiences, help those impacted with the healing process, and to educate, document and raise our community's awareness of the extent of domestic and sexual violence problem.

This year to mark our 42 years of providing domestic violence services, we are exhibiting the Clothesline Project, with a larger than ever collection of t-shirts created by victims. There will be two gallery exhibitions, one in Poughkeepsie, NY and one in Rhinebeck, NY.

All proceeds from the Clothesline Project benefits those we serve, and helps Grace Smith House continue to be an open door for the victims of domestic violence.  Our goal is to have a sponsor for each t-shirt. Join us.
