HUNTSVILLE — In order to better serve its mission — the clients — the board and staff of the SAAFE House have several projects and fundraisers in the works.
The SAAFE House clients are victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.
Kimberly Dyan Moore, president of the SAAFE House board of directors, said the organization is strategically planning for the future, which includes improved client services, trauma-informed care, and putting clients first while working to educate the community.
“Our priorities are our clients in our four-county coverage area, which includes Polk, San Jacinto, Trinity, and Walker counties,” Moore said.
Toward that end, the organization, through the help of its deeply appreciated donors, will complete the renovation of the Huntsville client residence very soon. Moore said upon completion the new shelter will provide an improved atmosphere for our clients to begin the healing process
Moore also said that to better serve our clients, and since a new fiscal year is approaching, the board is restructuring the management team to improve the quality of service and to strengthen the SAAFE House mission and the advocacy we provide to the communities we serve.
There are several fundraising events planned for the future in all counties in the SAAFE House area.
Due to board positions that are coming open for the new fiscal year, SAAFE House is looking for area residents who are passionate about our mission to help the organization continue to grow, and we particularly would like to see people from Polk, Trinity, and San Jacinto counties come forward.
Moore said they also are looking for volunteers from the communities we serve, as we’re always in need of them.
“We are committed to raising ours and our clients’ voices,” Moore said.
