Donate Goods and Products

Share This

The families that Safe Horizon serves through our program offices, drop-in centers, and shelters often need essential, basic items. Your generous support of Safe Horizon through a donation of material goods and products can help a family recover from violence and abuse sooner and help them find their independence.

Seasonal/Holiday Donations

We accept seasonal donations but ask that products/goods are donated during the season for which they are most appropriate. For donations during the major holiday season, please send in your donation(s) by December 15, which will allow us time to process your gift and to distribute materials to our shelters, children’s and homeless youth centers, and other program locations.

Car Donations

Charity Navigator

We are not listed on Charity Navigator because they only rate 5,000 charities out of an estimated 1.5 million charities in the U.S., and they do not at this time accept more charities.  Although Safe Horizon is now celebrating 35 years of exemplary service, we are still not listed on their site.  We do follow financial best practices for charities as you can see on Guidestar and also by our BBB rating.

Safe Horizon's mission is to provide support, prevent violence and promote justice for victims of crime and abuse, their families and communities.
