Pay It Forward
Support Our Sponsored Charity
Every year, Oregon AWHONN selects a local charity to support during our Fall Conference. This year, we will be supporting Safe Haven Maternity Home. Read more about this amazing group below.
We ask all attendees to please help by donating in any way you can. We will be holding a diaper drive and quilt raffle to support our charity. Bring any number of unopened packages of diapers or contribute much-needed supplies via the Amazon link below. Attendees who donate diapers or supplies will be entered in a drawing for a fabulous prize.
While at Conference, purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a beautiful hand-made quilt. All money raised from the quilt raffle will be DOUBLED by Oregon AWHONN and donated directly to Safe Haven Maternity Home.

Safe Haven’s overall purpose is to ensure residents develop successful independent living and job skills necessary to act as responsible parents and become contributing members in their community. Life and job skills are essential to success. Our experienced staff model and teach daily life skills to these young women and network with community resource agencies to provide wrap around services that allow residents to maintain an independent, healthy lifestyle for themselves and their babies. Upon individual evaluation, residents may stay up to one year after their baby is born while securing safe housing.
