Jonesboro, Ga. (June 28, 2017) – The Heritage Community Foundation presented a $4,800 grant to Kathleen Tucker, Executive Director of Haven House to purchase computers for the staff and residents of the domestic violence shelter.
“Haven House is an important resource in our community”, said Jenny Smith, Past President and Board Member of the Heritage Community Foundation. “They provide a year-round domestic violence shelter along with 24-hour emergency help along with counseling, financial counseling and legal services. These funds will purchase new computers to help with the facility operations as well as assist those living at the shelter. We recognize the valuable services Haven House provides and are glad we can partner with them to provide new computers”.
