Elko Committee Against Domestic Violence (CADV) has been in Elko since 1980 and Harbor House was completed in 1998 and has been a shelter to families in crisis for 20 years. We are asking our community to help us raise $100,000 to give our safe house some much needed improvements and repairs.
The organization will be running a capital campaign, called 20 for 20, throughout 2018 to improve the inside and outside of Harbor House – the only domestic violence shelter within 30,000-square miles. After 20 years of use, the safe house needs many new things from new paint on the walls to an improved kitchen. We are hoping every person who donates to Harbor House, asks 20 of their friends to also contribute to our organization, hence the name of the campaign, 20 for 20. Anyone who donates $400 or more will be added to our sponsor wall.Read More
