Throughout the month of December, Game Point will be collection donations of new and gently used games to donate to Safe Haven Family Shelter. Safe Haven is the only shelter to housing program in Middle Tennessee that accepts entire families. The donations made to this drive will be used to augment the other entertainment options for the children that arrive at the shelter with their family when experiencing a housing crisis.
Here’s some more about Safe Haven, from their site:
Safe Haven helps families experiencing homelessness by providing for their immediate needs of shelter and stability. We operate through effective and results-driven programs, integrating services that are evidence-based. Our housing first model, coupled with wrap around services is designed to give families the necessary tools to achieve lasting self-sufficiency, stable employment and secured housing. All of our housing programs begin in shelter. We have 10 spaces for families with children in our Shelter. Following a housing first model, we begin a housing plan when families enter shelter. Though multiple community grants, we are able to assist approximately 30 families at a time with housing in the community.
When you come out to Game Point this month, consider bring a game to donate to this incredible program.
