Abusers have total control over the family finances. Fortunately, so do you.
Safe Haven Shelter accepts donations in many forms – from cash to new women’s clothing, from unused household items to office supplies. These donations assist the women while in shelter and as women depart and find stable housing they may take these important items with them as they start their new lives.
Safe Haven Shelter and Resource Center has launched Operation Care-A-Van, a 90-day capital campaign to fund a new van.
Our current van has over 135,000 miles on it, and we’re looking to our friends in the community to help us replace it.
The new van will be used for:
- Picking up women who are in imminent danger
- Taking children on field trips and to school
- Transporting women to appointments
- Running errands and grocery shopping for the shelter
We’ve already secured a challenge gift of up to $5,000 in matching funds. Please help us meet and exceed this goal. Every dollar you give provides transportation to the women and children in our care.
Your dollar goes even further with a cash donation due to the nature of our vendor relationships and bulk quantity purchasing. We accept on-line donations through GiveMN.org – click on the icon below to donate today.
Do you have an old cell phone that you’re not using? Don’t throw it away – donate it to Safe Haven! With your old cell phone, a battered woman can use this phone to call 911 in an emergency. In addition, as part of our recycling program, old cell phones can generate income to further assist the women and children. Drop offs can be made at Safe Haven Resource Center, 414 W. 1st Street, downtown Duluth.
If you prefer to donate items or goods, please view our donations policy or give us a call at 218-728-6481 to verify our current needs.
