Celebrate HERSTORY

March is Women's History Month!

At Safe Harbor, we celebrate the resilience and bravery of women every day. For Women's History Month, we are taking time to share and celebrate the history of women, especially those who have pioneered and joined in the fight against domestic violence. We've come a long way, and while we still have work to do, we want to honor and recognize the contributions of women to our work.

One of these incredible women is Doris Haley, a member of Safe Harbor's board of directors. Check out our blog to learn more about Doris and join us in celebrating her. 

Follow us on social media and celebrate Women's History Month with us! 

Upstate SC Immigrant Victim Coalition Meeting

The Upstate Council to the South Carolina Immigrant Victim Coalition (SCIVC) is proud to host the first quarterly meeting of 2022.
This meeting will focus on the trauma refugees face before, during and sometimes even after their journeys.
A panel of experts will lead an engaging conversation about asylum seekers and refugees through a trauma-informed perspective. Panelists include:
  • Nina Cano Richards, Immigration Attorney & Activist in Charleston, SC
  • Brandon Baughn, Office Director for World Relief Upstate, SC
  • Martha Gomez, Social Worker and Therapist for VOCA HOPE Project in Charleston, SC
The SCIVC is a network of professionals, advocates, law enforcement, attorneys, health care providers, and community leaders dedicated to ensuring access to services and justice for immigrants. Our meetings are always free to attend and open to all.
Team Spotlight: Safe Harbor's Help Line
As the main entry point to Safe Harbor services, the Help Line welcomes calls from adult survivors of all ages, races, religions, nationalities, immigration statuses, gender identities, sexual orientations, and abilities. The Help Line is operated 24/7/365 by a diverse, caring group of staff members, interns, and volunteers trained in crisis intervention, empathetic listening, and trauma-informed principles. The line is accessible to LEP (Limited English Proficiency) and Deaf or hard-of-hearing individuals, and line workers are continually making strides to increase the line’s accessibility and inclusivity, with the goal of ensuring all survivors feel safe and valued.  

Survivors calling the line are often calling in the midst of immense trauma, confusion, and fear, and what a caller hears from a line worker can make an enormous impact on their lives going forward.

Volunteers Needed

We have 1 part-time maintenance person responsible for the repair and maintenance (including lawn care) for all of our shelters. We could use some help! We would like to have volunteers for general lawn care (trim and cut grass monthly) at each of our shelter locations. You can choose one location or all!
We are able to provide a push mower. Sadly, our Riding mower is no longer operable, if anyone could donate a new or gently used mower or other yard equipment, that would be amazing!
