At the April SOS meeting at the Arlington shelter, SafeHaven CEO Kathryn Jacobs‘ report about a new assessment tool to determine and score chances of a victim’s homicide was sobering and informative. She also explained how the SafeHaven Reformative Services group works with defenders to hold offenders accountable. The more we learn about the complexities of domestic violence in our community, the more support we want to give SafeHaven.
Also on the agenda, Anna Saunders introduced Tia Thomas, SH Arlington Shelter Site Director, and Susan Van Meter, Children’s Program Director, who provided interesting insights into their staff duties and programs. This year Anna’s urgent needs buddies at Trophy Club Ladies Golf Association donated two trunk loads of baby clothes and supplies for the Fort Worth shelter. Thanks, ladies!
