Grace’s Mission Project of the Month for June will be to support SafeHaven in Arlington. SafeHaven is the largest and most comprehensive agency in Tarrant County providing services at no cost to domestic violence victims. They provide 24-hour care and transitional housing to families seeking their first taste of independence. Clients under the care of SafeHaven receive counseling, legal services, case managements and more. They also provide trained bilingual advocates as necessary.
SafeHaven is in need of items for women, children, including teenage boys and girls, and pregnant women. Many times these mothers and children leave with only the clothing they are wearing. The following is a list of items members of Grace may use to support this worthy project. Donations can be brought to the church narthex.
- Underwear for women, children of all ages, including teen boys and girls; bras of various sizes.
- Socks, various sizes
- T-shirts/shorts play clothes; are in need of sizes 6-8 and 12-16 for older children
- Hygienic items: shampoo and conditioner, body washes, body lotions
- Books for children and adults (They are NOT in need of board games). These can be books from your shelves.
- They will also accept devotional booklets, such as Portals of Prayer. Consider past copies.
This organization and its clients are always in need of our prayers, but we ask that you set aside special time during the month of June to pray for both SafeHaven personnel and those they service. Your support is appreciated.
