We often have thoughtful members of the community who call and want to make donations of clothing, furniture, appliances and other household items to the Safehouse. Unfortunately, we are not always in a position to take those items. However, we have come up with some ways for you to give away your unwanted items and still benefit the Advocate Safehouse Project. It is a good idea to call the business before taking the items to them especially if your items are furniture or appliances to confirm they will take your items.Defiance Thrift Store (2518 S. Glen Avenue, Glenwood Springs, 945-0234) takes donations of clothing (including children’s and men’s clothing) and household goods. Our clients can receive vouchers to shop there for free.
Habitat for Humanity ReStore (Glenwood Springs, 945-7733) takes furniture. Our clients can receive vouchers to shop at the ReStore for free or very cheaply.
Miser’s Mercantile (303 Main Street, Carbondale, 963-3940) takes salable items and donates a portion of the sale to the Safehouse.
Rifle Thrift Store (Corner of 4th and East Street, Rifle) takes donations of clothing (including children’s and men’s clothing) and household goods. Our clients can receive vouchers to shop there for free.
The Thrift Shop (422 E. Hopkins Avenue, Aspen, 925-3121) takes clothing and household items in good shape. The Thrift Shop donates generously to local non-profits and ASP receives approximately $4,000 from them each year.
Cell Phones – Ever wonder what to do with your old cell phone?
The Advocate Safehouse Project has the answer for you! We collect used cell phones, not older than four years old. We use these phones for two purposes. First, phones are given to survivors of domestic and sexual violence in highly lethal situations so that they may access emergency personnel at any time. Secondly, any excess inventory of phones is sold to a company that will refurbish the phones and sell them to companies overseas.
If your family, community, church or company is thinking about organizing a cell phone drive, please contact us at 945-2632.
Money received from these efforts goes directly to fund Advocate Safehouse Project’s programs. This is a win-win proposition. You can support the Advocate Safehouse Project, receive a tax deduction and your old phones are recycled. Phones with chargers (no other accessories please) can be dropped off at the Glenwood Springs Police Department, 101 West 8th Street, Glenwood Springs. Please include your name and address with the donated cell phones.
At any time you are welcome to call us at (970) 945-2632 to discuss monetary contributions or in-kind gifts. Gifts can be mailed to the Advocate Safehouse Project (ASP) at PO Box 2036, Glenwood Springs, CO 81602 or through the "Donate" button on the right side of this website.
"Safe Nights" goal is to provide shelter and safety for victims of domestic and/or sexual violence. At the Advocate Safehouse Project it costs as much as $50 per person per night of shelter. Housing a family of four for the maximum six week period can cost upwards of $8,000. Last year alone, the Advocate Safehouse Project provided more than 1,400 “Safe Nights” of shelter.
The Advocate Safehouse Project in collaboration with the Glenwood Springs Post Independent sponsor an on-going weekly “Safe Nights” calendar in the newspaper on Mondays for the week. Community members have an opportunity to sponsor a "Safe Night" for $50. Donors can sponsor a "Safe Night" for a birthday, an anniversary, a special holiday, a gift for someone who has everything, and/or a gift to remember a loved one. The opportunities are endless.
Your name or your special someone’s name will be published in the “Safe Nights” calendar on the date you sponsor. And, if you are sponsoring the “Safe Night” in someone else’s honor, a “Safe Nights” acknowledgment card will be sent to them from the Advocate Safehouse Project.
Make a difference by sponsoring a “Safe Night”! Call (945-2632 x 104) or
today to reserve your special “Safe Night”! You can pay for your "Safe Night" through the "Donate" button on the right side of this website as well.
