Prior to Covid-19, successful SOS fundraisers included Celebrity Chefs 2020 event in January, and the annual Tennis Benefit in May 2019. Because of the pandemic, a Celebrity Chefs 2021 Donation Drive raised funds without an in-person event. SOS was excited to present Celebrity Chefs 2022 on January 23 at the Hurst Conference Center.  The event was an enormous success thanks to generous sponsors, donors and attendees.  Plans for the 2023 Celebrity Chefs are in the works!   After a two year delay, the Annual SOS Women's Tennis Benefit was held May 17-19, 2022, at the Southlake Tennis Center.  180 tennis players and 31 volunteers contributed to the event's success.  

In addition, the SafeHaven Berry Good Buys Resale Shop in Fort Worth serves a vital role for SafeHaven clients who often give up everything to flee for safety. This retail store supplies apparel to women and children in two shelters, helping to meet their immediate needs. Clients also receive vouchers to continue shopping at Berry Good Buys as they start new lives. SOS members consistently collect donations of clothing and household goods to be delivered to Berry Good Buys.

In spite of the pandemic, Mid-Cities SOS collected furniture and household items for transitional housing for SafeHaven clients. In April 2020, SOS members and friends got out their sewing machines to make 745 masks for SafeHaven clients and staff. Last December a dedicated committee set up Angel trees in northeast Tarrant County and collected an abundance of gift cards for SafeHaven children. Hundreds of tiny caps have been knitted for infants living at SafeHaven. Over 4000 books have been collected for the SafeHaven women and children eagerly waiting to read them..

SafeHaven of Tarrant County provides 24-hour emergency shelter for abused women and children in two locations in Tarrant County. Children range in age from newborns to 17 years of age, although most are 2-12 years old. These children are the primary beneficiaries of Mid-Cities SOS funds, plus additional help is provided for women and children in the transitional housing programs. 

2020 was the 35th Anniversary of the founding of Mid-Cities Supporters of SafeHaven (SOS).

Our Needs

Domestic violence has tripled because of Covid-19. SafeHaven shelters remain full. The staff at SafeHaven continues to work diligently to keep survivors safe and hold offenders accountable. Your generosity helps women and children start new lives. Please make a gift today to ensure that continues!


Mid-Cities Supporters of SafeHaven (SOS) is a grass-roots organization devoted to assisting SafeHaven of Tarrant County Inc. in its mission to end family violence through financial aid, volunteer and support services, and to increase community awareness of domestic violence.

Mid-Cities SOS volunteers have worked for 37 years raising funds to support victims of domestic violence. The organization continues to assist SafeHaven financially as it serves high risk survivors when fewer offenders are being held behind bars, and are instead out on bond. SafeHaven is doing everything in its power to turn around what has become a homicide trend - to stop domestic violence homicides through extended outreach, deeper hotline support, intense shelter services, and community partnerships. Funding has started to decline and the need continues to rise. Your support is needed more than ever!
