Fair Haven Center for Women

Our December Share Happy Donation went to the Fair Haven Center for Women in Highland, Indiana. The Fair Haven Center for Women was founded by survivors for survivors. They exist to facilitate a safe and faith focused recovery program for hurting women who have experienced trauma and sexual violence and to bring about the education and awareness to the communities in which they serve. This amazing organization offers four different programs to women making sure there’s a service for whatever it is the individual is going through. We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet the staff and co-founder, Kelly Vates during the donation. Kelly Vates, a national speaker and published author on childhood sexual abuse is truly an inspiration to many! As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse Kelly is the author of the book “Shattered Innocence” and speaks to groups and individuals about her story. Fair Haven Center for women works with the hospitals, and provides response bags after an evidence collection exam has taken place. During the evidence collection exam the individual’s clothing is taken for evidence leaving them with nothing. Our shirts will now be a part of the response bags and with the positive message we hope that they can uplift the recipients spirits and always remind them that there is good in this world and even after going through such trauma they are still able to be confident and vibrant women!! We are so excited to have donated 200 shirts to this organization which will fill the bags for a full year!
