Thank you for thinking of us!

Below is the list of our current needs for our Shelter and Resource Center programs. We ask that donations be in new condition. For items that are not listed below please contact our Community Engagement Coordinator at or (218)740-6601.

Donations from the list below can be brought to our Resource Center at 414 W 1st St, Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm. Please do not bring any donations to the shelter location.

Alternative donation times and arrangements can be made by request by contacting our Community Engagement Coordinator at or (218)740-6601.

Due to limited space and corporate sponsors meeting our general clothing needs, Safe Haven is no longer accepting donations of gently used clothing and household goods.
