How YOU can Help HAVEN Save People from Abuse

How YOU can Help HAVEN Save People from Abuse

(HAVEN, Aug. 27, 2017)

As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of others to help us carry out our efforts. It’s that effort, however big or small, that goes directly to helping survivors. Without it, shelter would not be provided, wounds would not be healed, lives would not be saved, hope would not be found and confidence would not be restored.

Although you may not have time to volunteer on a regular basis, there are many ways to help HAVEN through events, group projects, or spreading awareness.

Host a Gift Drive

A fun way to support HAVEN is to host a gift drive comprised of items on our wish list. The Residential and START programs both have ongoing, year-round needs to run their programs, such as: food, toiletries, baby items, and household supplies. By hosting a gift drive, you provide critical items needed to run these programs while allowing HAVEN to continue to provide services free of charge.

Take a look at our wish list to learn more. If you decide to host a gift drive, please contact us in advance at 248-322-3705 or
