This also makes a great corporate or faith-based holiday giving opportunity. To set up your holiday fundraising page, click here.

Warm Beds: Donate towards the purchase of twin and full beds for families. Twin beds are about $150 and Full Beds are about $250. Any amount will be helpful and put towards the cost of beds. Click here to donate towards the purchase of new beds.

Sponsor a Family: We have approximately 50 families in various programs at Safe Haven. We will provide you with the sizes for the kids and parents, along with a couple of “wish list” items for each family or family member. If you are interested in sponsoring a family, please complete this form online or contact TJ Swanson at: tswanson@safehaven.org

Current Shelter Needs: Consider supporting the daily needs at Safe Haven by purchasing the items that we use most on a daily basis. These include twin and full sheet sets, comforters and blankets, towels and wash cloths, pillows, toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, trash bags, toiletry items, HE laundry detergent and room furnishings including TV’s, desk lamps, trash cans and shower curtains and liners. Most of these items are listed on our website and on our wish lists. For a current list of needed items, click here. Not sure what to choose? Consider a gift card.

Hearts for Homes: Donate towards the cost associated with moving a family into their own housing (about $2000 to $2500 per family).

Needs include: pots and pans, crock pot and coffee makers, bedding, and  towels, shower curtains, wash rags, dishes and bake ware, utensils. Examples can be found on our Amazon wish lists, but those are suggestions. Do not feel obligated to purchase those specific items.

Make a donation to support various clubs (Science Club, Creativity Club, etc.), camps, fieldtrips, school uniforms, supplies and more. Please see our Amazon wish list or contact Frankie Phipps at fphipps@safehaven.orgfor specific items needed. Your donation can also be used to support our youth and young adults in post-secondary programs.

Shop on Amazon using our AmazonSmile link, and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchase to Safe Haven.

Register your Kroger Plus card and designate Safe Haven Family Shelter as your charity. We will receive a portion of your total expenditures.

Christmas Cheer Campaign: Help us lift the spirits of our homeless families during the holiday season by participating in our Christmas Cheer Campaign. Send a Christmas card to Safe Haven, and we will deck the walls with positive messages from the community. Please consider enclosing a donation and/or gift card to Target, Kroger or WalMart to help our families throughout the year.
