$25k Grant from Verizon to Fund New Program
Today Safe Haven announced the launch of our new Client Connection Program!
The Program will be implemented at the Safe Haven Resource Center, at 414 W. 1st Street in Duluth, where a new full-time Client Connection Coordinator will ensure victims receive the services they need to rebuild their lives with a single point of contact. The new position is made possible by a $25,000 grant from the HopeLine® program from Verizon.
The Client Connection Coordinator will get to know the clients, their situations and be a familiar face for those seeking assistance with intimate details of their life. It will also allow Resource Center Advocates to stay connected with each person and ensure that their legal advocacy needs are tied to their long-term needs and goals. The Client Connection Program is the achievement of a long-held vision to initiate and maintain long-term contacts with clients, engage them in services and offer support to continue a life free from violence.
We are so grateful for Verizon’s contribution to this new program which will help us to better serve victims of domestic violence in our community.
