When’s the last time you saved someone’s life?

1 in 4 women are victims of domestic violence. This could be your sister, friend, neighbor or even you. By volunteering you can help end this tragedy. One person can make a difference.

Purpose

In an effort to educate the public on the issues of domestic violence and to enhance the services we provide, Safe Haven Shelter recruits and trains volunteers to work in all program areas.

Recognition

Each month we have a “Volunteer of the Month.” These volunteers are dedicated and we wouldn’t have the organization that we do without them!

United Way’s Volunteer of the Year – and Safe Haven’s Own – Adeline!

adeline 1Adeline, a volunteer since 2010, has dedicated over 540 hours of childcare in the evenings at the Resource Center. Adeline treats every child with respect in a nurturing environment. At the end of every evening with Adeline the children are happy and engaged. They have spent their time in a nurturing, warm and supportive environment. We can not measure the true impact of Adeline’s volunteer time with our organization. Adeline’s passion for our mission and the work we do with children is priceless and irreplaceable. We wouldn’t be able to provide the services to our mother’s and/or their children without such a selfless volunteer like Adeline.
