February 2017 - Charity of the Month

Our Charity of the month for February is HOPE HAVEN REFUGE, BALLINA.

Hope Haven is a refuge for women & children fleeing domestic & family violence.

When a woman identifies that she needs to leave her home in order to make herself safe from violent or controlling behaviour, Hope Haven provides secure accommodation & support to help her build a better life.

Hope Haven, with the help of the ADRA Opshop also provides assistance to women & families with basic household needs when leaving the refuge to live in their own accommodation. This assists women who may have no furniture, kitchen items or linen, etc.

In order to assist Hope Haven to continue to support women & children fleeing domestic & family violence they are always open to donations of the below items:
• non-perishable food items
• good quality children’s books toys & DVDs,
• children’s & adults colouring books & pencils, and 
• vouchers for items & services that cannot be provided through the Opshop such as intimate apparel & haircuts.

Financial donations go toward a number of projects to improve the safety and comfort of the refuge and to programs aimed at assisting women to break the cycle of violence. In addition, donations to the ADRA Opshop are always welcome as all funds raised by the Opshop go directly to running Hope Haven.

If you would like to personally contribute to Hope Haven, we would be happy to pass on any donations on your behalf. We also have a donation box for financial contributions in each of our offices.
