Safe Haven of Greater Waterbury

Giving Items

Many of you are seeking ways to support survivors, and we appreciate the support the community has shown! We have always been grateful for your generosity which has made our programs and services available to survivors.

Gift Cards & Certificates

Often our clients leave their homes with nothing more than the clothes on their backs, or perhaps a small bag of belongings, creating the need to replace many items for themselves and their children. The most efficient way for us to help them with this is to provide them with gift cards to local stores to get them started. Additionally, as clients move on to their next safe place, most need additional help with setting up their new home. If we are able to give the client gift cards, they can shop for what they need.
Examples: Walmart, Target, Amazon, Stop & Shop, ShopRite, prepaid VISA or
MasterCard, CVS, Rite-Aid, Walgreens

Non Perishable Foods

Many of our clients need some extra help putting food on the table for their families. We keep a small pantry of food at the office to help them. We keep items such as: tuna fish, mayo, macaroni & cheese, juice boxes/canned juices, peanut butter & jelly, pudding or fruit cups, canned soups/stews, canned vegetables, pancake mix & syrup, individually packaged snacks (granola bars, fruit roll-ups, chips).
All packages must be sealed and not beyond the expiration date.
