Safe Haven Outreach Mission
Safe Haven, Parsons’ homeless shelter, opens their door to those who have no place to go – no place to call home. Safe Haven is directed by Melissa Brown, a loving, compassionate woman who “lives” her job, 24 hours a day. (Bless her loving heart.) Where do you go when you have no job, no money, no food? Anyone can become homeless due to job loss, fires, floods, large medical bills – the reasons are many. Some occupants are drug or alcohol addicted; some are displaced military veterans – some are families who have fallen on hard times. All trying to get back on their feet and turn their lives around. Not all succeed – strict rules must be followed to live there. Housing only 8 people at a time, sadly, many are turned away every day. Carefully screened, applicants receive shelter, food, medical care, help in finding a job and even help in transitioning to an apartment or house complete with furniture (donated by caring people like you) when they are ready to be on their own. We are blessed with our warm homes, comfortable beds, and our loving families. Are you your brother’s keeper? Show your love, your compassion and your generosity.
