There are two options for making monetary donations to Safe Haven. Make a general donation or donate to the capital campaign. Learn more about the capital campaign on our homepage. Find out other ways to contribute on our How to Contribute page.


Special Needs

Throughout the year many wonderful donations are dropped off to help our families in need. Any items you use in your home to clean, cook, do laundry, or take care of your personal hygiene are used by residents in shelter. A perfect item to consider donating is gift cards to area department and grocery stores, Chamber Bucks or gas cards in $10-$20 increments. These cards are used by the shelter staff to purchase specific items that are needed at any given time. Your donations are greatly appreciated!!
