We Need Help Line Volunteers!

We Need Help Line Volunteers!

Our help line (1.800.291.2139) often has a very high call volume and that is certainly the case these days. We wanted to give our community a heads up on what to expect and how to help us during this time. 

If you're calling, please note that it may take several rings before a staff member or volunteer is able to answer your call when we have several calls coming in at once and not enough manpower behind the line to accommodate the number and volume. We apologize for any delays you may experience! 

Our help line is intended for callers who are seeking our services or have questions about our services. If you are seeking non-shelter services (counseling, case management, domestic violence education classes, help with an Order of Protection), you can also choose to complete an online intake. If you have questions about things like donating goods, volunteer positions, or employment opportunities, please check out our website or email us at info@safeharborsc.org

Last but most importantly, we need help line volunteers! If you’re passionate about the issue of domestic violence and have time to give, please consider being trained to become a volunteer on our help line. Learn more about what it's like to volunteer on the help line and, if you're interested, please reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator, Lisa Nalley!

I am a survivor of domestic abuse.

“I didn’t know that I was being abused because...

I am a survivor of domestic abuse.

“I didn’t know that I was being abused because my definition of abuse looked different. My husband pushed me, but most of my suffering was verbal and psychological. I left my husband to protect our young daughter. Almost immediately I felt the weight of his oppression begin to lift. I could see a difference in my daughter as well. Then he broke into my home and assaulted me in-front of her.

I sought help and was led to Safe Harbor. My daughter and I are in counseling now. I am sorting out the mess that abuse has caused. I am finding my voice and seeking opportunities to grow and better my life as well as my daughter's. She will gauge her self-worth from my own self-worth. I must show her that she deserves the best, by expecting the best for myself.

Many years I suffered in silence. By telling my story and being honest with friends and family, I am taking control of my life again.”

- Beth
