The Beacon of Hope Award was created by Safe Harbor in 2007 to recognize an outstanding individual or agency that has been instrumental in breaking the cycle of domestic violence within the Richmond community.
This year will be honoring HHHunt Homes and their commitment to renovating our emergency shelter. Research shows that providing a safe, welcoming environment for individuals escaping from violent situations increases the chances of breaking the cycle of violence.
For 16 years, Safe Harbor has provided the support that survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault need to overcome their crisis and to transform their lives. We envision that every person in our community can take pride in having safe homes and healthy relationships. Over the years, our programs have evolved to include emergency shelter, counseling and court advocacy for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking, and a community outreach, and education and prevention program.
If you would like to be a part of this inspirational and educational fundraising event, please consider being a table host. As a table host, you would invite seven (7) of your friends, co-workers, family, neighbors or anyone you know who would have an interest in supporting the work we are doing in our community. There is no cost to attend this event, but this is a fundraiser so there will be an “ask” the night of the event. For more information about being a table host, please contact Mary Maupai, Development Director, at 804-249-9470 ext. 17 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
