Capital Campaign

Campaign Success!

After more than ten years of planning and two years of renovation on a $3.5 million building project, Laurel House's Capital Campaign, Rebuilding Lives, Restoring Hope, is complete! This building, now known as the Safe Haven Center, provides emergency shelter and support services to victims of domestic abuse and their families.


Just as our fundraising has exceeded expectations, so has the actual building itself! The Safe Haven Center is 9,000 square feet of warm and welcoming space, which provides increased capacity and accessibility to on-site services, including a 24- hour hotline, crisis response, individual and group counseling, case management, and programs for children. Each area in the building was thoughtfully designed to ensure that clients and residents feel safe and secure from the moment they walk into the building.


Beth Sturman, Executive Director, stated at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, "While our original building has been a haven for thousands of families seeking safety, the Safe Haven Center will increase our capacity and provide much-needed enhancements in design, security, and accessibility. This new location is close to public transportation, job training programs, employment opportunities, and many other community resources."


Thank you for contributing to a campaign that will ensure life-saving support to those in our community. Check out the video below for a video tour of the Safe Haven Center!

Our Journey to the Safe Haven Center

Laurel House purchased a building in Lansdale, PA, where it relocated its former shelter and expanded support services. This location is close to public transportation, job training programs, employment opportunities, and many other community resources. This building is now known as the Safe Haven Center. While our original shelter had been a haven for thousands of families seeking safety, the Safe Haven Center has increased our capacity and accessibility and provides much-needed enhancements in design, security, and amenities.

As the county's only comprehensive domestic violence agency, Laurel House provides life-saving services and support for the entire community. We are so grateful for your investment in this campaign. This secure and easily accessible facility houses our emergency shelter, which is the only one in the county, as well as some of our supportive services for domestic violence victims and their children. The Safe Haven Center has transformed our organization's capacity to serve victims, improve outcomes for more families in Montgomery County, and ensure a safer community for years to come.
