NV Big Give

We are pleased to announce that on March 10, 2016 Safe Nest will be participating in this year’s NV Big Give. Last year, #NVBigGive was a huge success for our organization raising over $42,000 to help fund the Domestic Violence Hotline. 

This year, Safe Nest is trying to raise $50,000 to support the Safe Nest Shelter.  The shelter is a safe haven that provides victims of domestic violence and their children shelter, food, clothing and a chance to rebuild their lives. But the shelter is so much more, click here to see how amazing the Safe Nest shelter is!

Giving to Safe Nest during the #NVBigGive is easy.  Just click here and choose an amount--every little bit helps. 

Here is what your donation will provide to the women and children staying at the Safe Nest shelter:

$ 10 - Feeds a family of three for a day while in shelter

$ 25 - Feeds an infant for a day while in shelter

$ 50 - Pays for one therapy session for a victim of domestic abuse in shelter

$ 100 - Pays for the children’s recreation & tutoring program for a week while in shelter

$ 250 - Pays for one day of shelter and food for a family of three

$ 500 - Pays for a six week parenting class for a mother and her children
