However you choose to spend the holidays, The Haven extends our warmest wishes for the holiday season to all of our supporters who have made our work possible. 

Christmas is coming to town on Saturday, December 4th and Sunday, December 5th in downtown Warsaw at The Front Desk (187 Main Street Warsaw, VA). Shop local artisans, get Christmas gifts for your loved ones, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, support The Haven by buying some baked goodies at our bake sale, and participate in our holiday auction and raffle event. The annual Christmas parade in Warsaw will be happening on Saturday so make sure you stop by to visit the market after the parade! Admission is FREE!

The Haven's Christmas Market would not be possible without the generosity of B.H Baird Insurance in Warsaw, Garner's Produce in Warsaw, and Jack Rabbit Express in Kinsale who provided $500 Gold Star Sponsorships for our event.

We hope to see you there!
Giving Tuesday may have passed, but there is still time for year-end giving. Your support means a lot to the individuals and families we serve. Your support helps those in need obtain basic elements including a safe place to live; access to basic needs such as food, clothing, and medical treatment; support systems of friends, family, and community; and accurate information about the causes of violence, its effects, and the options available to hold perpetrators accountable.

We are seeing a significant increase in calls for services and a significant increase in the lethality of the violence being reported. Our services are needed now more than ever before. As we continue to face reductions in grant funding and fundraising challenges due to the pandemic, your support will help us keep our services available to women, men, and children experiencing intimate partner and sexual violence.
December 4th is National Cookie Day! To celebrate, make sure you stop by The Haven's Christmas Market at 187 Main Street in Warsaw where we will be selling a variety of baked goods, including Christmas cookies! All of the proceeds from the bake sale will benefit the work and mission of The Haven.

As Christmas approaches, we ask that you remember The Haven Shelter & Services in your holiday plans. While shopping for gifts for friends and love ones, please consider setting aside part of your budget to help The Haven make Christmas great for the families we serve. 

A need we have every year is wrapping paper, tape, shirt boxes, bows, and gift bags. Please consider donating these items to our Administrative Office so we can make this Christmas a little brighter for the families we serve, we would be more than happy to do the shopping for you!

Volunteers are needed to sort and shop for our Christmas Adopt a Family Program. Donors will finish dropping off Christmas gifts for our Adopt-A-Family program the first week in December. This year we will serving 50+ families!

Therefore, we could use your help to organize and supplement the gifts for families. Volunteers are needed Tuesday (Dec. 14th), Wednesday (Dec. 15th), and Thursday (Dec. 16th), and potentially Friday (Dec. 17th). The two shifts available are 10am-1pm and 1pm-4pm. 2 volunteers are needed for each shift. If you're available to help, please contact Brittany Clayborne at
