Safe Haven accepts in-kind donations of items our families can use in either the shelter program or as they move into transitional and permanent housing.
Unfortunately we cannot accept all donations. Please consult our needs/wish lists below before donating as these are the only items we can take at this time. Please note that we are no longer accepting donations of clothes due to lack of storage space.
If you have any questions, please contact Brandy Transou at 615.256.8195
