Service King Collision Repair Centers announced it recently presented a check in the amount of $100,000 to representatives from SafeHaven of Tarrant County. The presentation was made possible through contributions raised from Service King’s annual Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Golf Event hosted in October at Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco, Texas.
SafeHaven is the largest and most comprehensive agency in Tarrant County, Texas, providing no-cost services to domestic violence survivors. This month’s presentation marked Service King’s second consecutive annual contribution to the non-profit organization, as the 2015 DFW Golf Tournament raised $70,000 for SafeHaven and its numerous support and shelter programs.
“We are elated to be the beneficiary of this year’s golf tournament,” said Kathryn Jacob, president and CEO of SafeHaven of Tarrant County. “This gift will provide safety and support to hundreds of families affected by domestic violence. Service King continues to set the standard for service in our community, and we are proud to consider them a partner.”
In 2015, SafeHaven provided protection to 664 women and 896 in emergency shelter. The shelter also provides domestic violence survivors with a variety of services and support aimed at establishing self-sufficiency. Through its housing programs, families are provided a secure environment while simultaneously obtaining life skills, education and improvised employment opportunities.
