Often, when a person is abused, financial resources are controlled by the abuser, cutting the victim off from resources to escape. Taking away some of these financial barriers allows for victims to secure the services they need. All of our services are provided free of charge to anyone seeking help.

Financial support to Safe Harbor allows us to provide essential services to over 1,000 individuals each year.  A gift to our Annual Fund will help ensure that Safe Harbor remains available for all who seek our help.  All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowable by law.

No gift is too small!!

In June 2011, Safe Harbor was the recipient of a bequest from Mrs. Lora Robins, which was used to create an endowment for the agency. We are extremely grateful to Mrs. Robins, and the entire Robins family, for their generous support.

This transformational gift will ensure Safe Harbor’s existence for the foreseeable future and beyond, enabling us to continue to carry out our mission. A small portion of the endowment fund supports general operational costs each year. Gifts of cash, stock or planned gifts are accepted to support our endowment.

Making a gift to the Lora Robins Endowment Fund is an excellent way to support Safe Harbor’s mission for years to come.  To learn more, please call the Development Office at (804) 249-9470 x117.
