Thank you to the Statesboro-Bulloch County Library for hosting us! We loved partnering with you to spread awareness about Teen Dating Violence.
Safe Haven makes presentations to churches, civic clubs, and other organizations. We can teach your group:
Two members of the Statesboro Therapy Dogs and their humans visited our Children's Program. One of the little girls in our shelter was afraid of dogs, including the support animal living in the shelter with another client. We needed to help her overcome this fear. Gatlin and his trainer, Cheri Duffey, worked patiently with the girl over a two-week period. By the time Gatlin left after his second visit, she was petting his soft fur!
Domestic violence thrives when we are silent; but if we take a stand and work together, we can end domestic violence. Throughout the month of October, help us to raise awareness about domestic violence and join in our efforts to end violence. Here is what you can do:

Join the National Week of Action
In observation of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Safe Haven and the Bulloch County Task Force hosted their annual Candlelight Vigil to support and honor the survivors of domestic violence.
The prayer was given by Francys Johnson of the Johnson Firm PC and Ashley Moore sang moving renditions of “You Raise Me Up” and “Amazing Grace”.
During the Vigil, a former Safe Haven client told her story of survival and everyone in attendance shared a moment of silence to honor those who have lost their lives due to domestic violence-related crimes in Georgia.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in this event!
On January 3, 2014, Madame Couture’s Consignment Boutique hosted a fashion show that benefited Safe Haven. As an entrance fee to see the show, members of the audience were asked to donate a paper product which were then given to the shelter. The show was held at the Averitt Center For The Arts and the night was full of energy and beautiful clothes from the local boutiques! We would like to give a big thanks to Madame Couture’s Consignment Boutique, DeJa’Vu Upscale Resale Consignment Boutique, Children’s Cottage Consignment, RJ Pope Traditional Menswear, The Feathered Nest, and Silk and Purple for participating in the event. Paper products are always a huge need at Safe Haven and we appreciate your thoughtfulness!
