Safe Harbor staff are available to discuss a range of topics - including domestic violence education and information about our services - at speaking engagements, professional trainings/workshops, and awareness campaigns. If you're interested, please request a speaker. Please note that coordinating a speaking engagement takes time and we often cannot fulfill last-minute speaking requests.
Our staff and volunteers are also available to distribute brochures, posters, and other outreach materials to your business and/or community event. If you're interested in receiving Safe Harbor materials, please email us at email@example.com.
Safe Harbor’s services are provided at no cost to our clients and our community because we want to serve with as few barriers as possible. While our services are free, Safe Harbor does incur costs for the services we offer. These costs include staff compensation and benefits, shelter maintenance, repair and operational costs, rent for our office spaces, office equipment and supplies, outreach materials and brochures, food, supplies and support for our shelter residents, and much more.
When requesting a speaking engagement or educational program and making a donation is possible for you, please consider donating to Safe Harbor based on your ability to give. Here are some suggestions based on the costs of our outreach program:
$25.75 = 250 brochures (this lasts about one month or what we send to a large organization requesting brochures)
$140 = monthly “behind the scenes” cost for outreach program (subscriptions, program evaluation technology, cell phone/app costs)
$161.65 = 100 tear-off posters plus mailing costs
$210 = cost for an average speaking engagement (includes mileage reimbursement, staff time, and materials)
Living and working through a pandemic has changed the way we think about our work, our time, and our productivity. Now that we have the tools to do virtual outreach activities, we are rethinking how we can best use our time and resources.
If you are requesting a Safe Harbor representative for a short speaking engagement (15 minutes or less), please consider if it would be possible for us to join your meeting virtually. We can provide a video or join your meeting via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or Google Meets. This option allows our staff and volunteers to maximize time to reach more people in our community, saving us valuable transportation time and costs.
For longer speaking engagements, outreach events, or trainings we can join virtually or in person, depending on your preferences and event plans. We are happy to talk with you further to determine how we may be able to fulfill your group’s needs.
