To take part in the collection drive, please contact Kimberly Clement at 985-438-1238 or by email at Kimberly@havenhelps.org.
Below is a list of suggested items that you, your group, or business can collect during the annual drive period:
One in four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. Women are abused emotionally, financially, and physically in many of these situations. Abusers create an environment of fear and intimidation using verbal threats and physical violence, as well as controlling the financial resources. This makes it very difficult for anyone being abused to flee. The Haven helps women break free from their horrid conditions and offers an environment that helps them stay safe.
Having somewhere safe to hide from their abuser is VERY vital to women and children who are being abused. Many times, women leave quickly with their children while their partner is away. They take nothing more than the clothes on their backs in their desperate attempt to get away before being seen. While at The Haven they are provided food, shelter, clothing, and victim assistance. The annual Give Thanks for Your Safe Home Supply Drive collects supplies used by The Haven daily to make survivors feel welcomed, safe, and cared for.
The 20th Annual “Home Is Where The Heart Is” Spring Gala was held on Saturday, March 17, 2018, at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center.
Residents from the surrounding area attended the memorable charity event presented by Watkins, CPA. The event raised critical funds for the agency. The evening provided an opportunity for guests to mingle, dance, sample cuisines from neighboring restaurants, bid on a variety of silent and live auction items.
The Haven truly appreciates everyone involved in making the Spring Gala a huge success. We would like to thank the Board of Directors, sponsors, restaurants, businesses, gourmet-to-go cooks, guests,
and volunteers. Without you, our work could not continue.
