Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) is held throughout the month of October to raise awareness and encourage folks to work together to end domestic violence. 

There are several ways you can get involved with DVAM such as:
The Haven is pleased to announce our Souper Chili Cookoff on Saturday, October 15, 2022 from 10am-4pm at Garner's Produce (22645 Kings Highway Warsaw, VA 22572)!

Enjoy a variety of soups, stews, gumbos, and chilis at our Northern Neck community-wide cookoff featuring vendors, artisans, kid-friendly activities, and beverages from the first brewery in Virginia’s Northern Neck: Montross Brewery! Don't forget to pick up some of the best produce in the Northern Neck at Garner's Produce! Other items will be available to purchase such as hot dogs, chips, soda, cornbread, and other baked goods at The Haven's concessions stand!

Help make your neighbor a real-life hero with each vote that is cast. The community may purchase tasting tickets to either order a sample or cup of soup. First place will be given to the competitor with the most tickets. Tasting begins from 10am to 3pm. After 3pm, the tickets will be counted and a winner announced.

The proceeds from this event will support the work of The Haven and will give our community a chance to have some food, fun, and friendly competition for the whole family!

Admission is free!
We're excited to announce that The Haven Christmas Market coincides with the Warsaw Christmas Parade! That's why we're spreading the word so you can save the date for our annual Christmas Market on December 3rd and 4th at Oyster Shoals Music Hall.

Get in the Christmas spirit, do some shopping, drink some hot chocolate, support the work of The Haven, and watch the parade!

Register to be a vendor TODAY for only $30! Outdoor spaces are filling up fast. Our market couldn't be a success without the help from sponsors. To learn more about vendor and sponsorship opportunities available, please visit
Call your ghouls, grab your boo, and join us for the fun! Help us make the event a lil' spookier and dress in costume. There will even be a prize for the best costume!

BINGO will be in-person this time at Montross Brewery (15381 Kings Hwy, Montross, VA 22520) on Friday, October 21st from 7pm-9pm! However, we will still have a virtual option for those interested.

Your $10 includes 3 cards. Additional cards are available for purchase. There will be prizes for each of our 10 games! It'll be a wickedly good time for the whole family! You can purchase your tickets at or at our Thrift Store.
The Shop 'Til It Stops Sale is back again this October for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Stop by Pearl Boutique October 28th and 29th from 10am-2pm for amazing deals that benefit The Haven. We raised $1,300+ last spring. Can you help us surpass this milestone? We hope to see you there!
Calling all volunteers! The Haven is in need of event volunteers to help with set-up, breakdown, and other activities throughout the day and to make our Souper Chili Cookoff a success.

Volunteers are needed for 11am-2pm and 2pm-5pm. If available, please sign up at
We are in need of bakers for our Souper Chili Cookoff taking place on Saturday. October 15th at Garner's Produce. We are looking for folks to provide baked goodies such as cookies, brownies, cakes, pies, etc. for our bake sale.

Additionally, since it's a chili cookoff we are also looking for cornbread! We ask that whatever folks donate they wrap the items individually (except the cookies), include the name of the item(s) they are donating on a piece of paper with any known allergens, and drop off the items at our Administrative Office on Thursday, October 13th .

If you are interested in helping us with this need, please email Brittany Clayborne at
Be the reason someone smiles by shopping at or in the Amazon app with AmazonSmile turned ON within Settings, and they will donate a portion of your purchase to The Haven!
