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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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)
"In Her Shoes" is an interactive simulation in which participants "walk in the shoes" of someone facing abuse from their intimate partner and learn about the difficult decisions and barriers survivors face. Following the simulation, a Safe Harbor facilitator will lead a debriefing session in which participants can discuss and share their thoughts and insights. Length: additional 1 hr – 1.5 hrs
Knowing how to help a victim of domestic violence can be difficult. Whether you are a faith leader, HR professional or dedicated community member, it is important to respond to someone who is experiencing abuse in a trauma-informed way. Safe Harbor can provide best practices for responding to someone who discloses intimate partner abuse or who you suspect may be experiencing abuse from their partner. Information can also be shared that is geared for faith communities/faith leaders who want to be supportive to people experiencing abuse. Length: additional 30 mins
If you are hosting a fundraiser or making a donation, a member of Safe Harbor’s development team can come and speak with your group about the impact of your gift. We will also cover basic domestic violence statistics and provide an overview of Safe Harbor’s services in our community. Length: 5 – 10 minutes
