Thursday afternoon, 28 September, marked the official opening of a new second season clothing boutique in the Logan Hyperdome.

This is not just any boutique but quality second season clothing and more at the Safe Haven Emporium.

Safe Haven is a not-for-profit group that assist women in domestic violent situations. The shop is located between the post office and Choice. This is not just an ordinary shop but a haven for any ladies requiring assistance or just a chat for advice.

Jaeneen Cunningham CEO of Safe Haven is very passionate about the progress the organisation has made with the production of their first safe house in Logan underway that will be ready to start helping women as early as November.

With one under their belt the plans are underway for the second one as soon as possible. These houses will bring hope to ladies that leave DV situations and give them the opportunity to have a roof over their heads while social and private housing is sought for them.

Jaeneen and husband Paul, along with their kids and partners, and most of all their extended family of volunteers were all smiles as they informed the invited guests of all the upcoming plans.

The Emporium is a great shop if you need help and advice on how to find that helping hand. If you are looking for that perfect garment, you can drop in and find your ideal item with lots of help from the ladies who also love a chat.

The afternoon saw councillors Mindy Russell, division 3 and Miriam Stemp, division 10, checking out the clothing and supporting this wonderful cause.

“Councillor Miriam Stemp and I had a ball together joining the official launch of Safe Haven Emporium Hyperdome,” said Cr Mindy Russell.

“Jaeneen, with her family and friends, are doing all they can to support women experiencing domestic violence. All the proceeds from this quality pre-loved women’s fashion go to helping women through the charity, Safe Haven.

“I scored this gorgeous pink number for only $75. It will be perfect for an upcoming council event. It even has pockets.”

All funds go towards helping women and kids get back on track with their lives by supplying safe places for them.
