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.


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.


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!

“I wanted to get more involved in the Duluth community. I admire Safe Haven for all they do for women and children who have experienced truly difficult life events.”




Gerry was selected by Safe Haven as our Live United Volunteer of the Year. Gerry has served over 500 hours with us in our Education Empowerment program. It’s because of her that we are able to offer the services we do to the women and children. The impact that she has on the women in her group will last a lifetime.
