Volunteer Opportunities

Child Care Provider

Childcare Providers serve the clients of Safe Haven by providing childcare programming while mothers attend support groups. Our fun and educational activities empower the children to develop appropriate coping mechanisms, safety planning skills and positive ways to deal with stress. With their children in a safe and supportive place, our clients have the opportunity to learn how to live a life free from abuse. This opportunity will be available on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Wednesday mornings.
