Conversations Boutique isn’t the only thing we are passionate about – even before we started our business, we knew we wanted use our boutique to support the philanthropic efforts of organizations dedicated to the health and wellness of women, as well as other causes near and dear to our hearts.
This is why Conversations Boutique proudly supports a variety of national and local charities including the Battered Women’s Shelter, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), Stewart’s Caring Place and PAWsibilities. We host several events each year in conjunction with these philanthropies where a portion of the proceeds from our sales goes to each of these amazing organizations. Read below to learn more about each organization.
There is hope for the families of violence, women, men and children who are in danger of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. The Battered Women’s Shelter of Summit and Medina Counties provides emergency services and supportive services to victims seeking to end family violence.
Unlike other agencies that focus on victims of all types of crime, Battered Women’s Shelter is the only agency in Summit and Medina counties that focuses on family violence, intervention and prevention. Learn more >

We all experience emotional ups and downs from time to time caused by events in our lives. Mental health conditions go beyond these emotional reactions and become something longer lasting.
