Help The Haven

13-Dec-2018

By: The Danos Foundation

The Haven is a local domestic violence shelter located in Houma, Louisiana, as well as, a 2018 Danos Gives grant recipient. In addition to this year’s grant, The Danos Foundation is asking for help from Danos employees in supporting The Haven this holiday season during their Give Thanks for Your Safe Home Supply Drive.

Christmas can be a very emotional time of year, especially for those who are displaced because of domestic concerns. 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.

There are two ways to donate:

  1. You can bring donated items (see a list of needs below) to the corporate office and place them in the purple box located by the stairwell in the Great Room.
  2. You can use the power of Amazon to order supplies with a few clicks and have them shipped to corporate headquarters. Please use The Haven Supply Drive within the full name blank so we can identify the packages arriving for The Haven. Adding your name is optional.
