On behalf of The Johnson County Safe Haven Board and Staff, I would like to thank our community for the support it has given us for the last fourteen years. During this time, Safe Haven has provided shelter from the storm of abuse for hundreds of victims of domestic violence, including women, men, and children.
As part of our recognition of October as Domestic Abuse Awareness Month, the Safe Haven board and staff held a silent auction to which many members of the area community contributed items. As a result, we were able to raise funds to be used toward better serving our clients, and we were able to remind the community of this essential service.
We would like to thank all those who gathered, donated, and purchased items, along with the First United Methodist Church Family who provided us with a space for the auction during their annual Bazaar. As a wise man once said, Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.
The Johnson County Safe Haven office is located at 311 South Church St. where they continue to make domestic abuse victims aware of their rights of protection in the courts, and help mothers and children to meet their goals as families and as functional human beings. Last but certainly not least, Safe Haven offers their clients a life without fear. If you are aware of an abusive situation or if youre trying to escape from mistreatment, call Johnson County Safe Havens 24-hour hotline at 423-727-1914. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR ABUSE!!
