Fall Luncheon – Safe Haven Ministries

This September, Safe Haven Ministries held its annual Fall Luncheon at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. Guests enjoyed a wonderful lunch while gaining a greater awareness for Safe Haven’s programs, the impact of domestic violence in our community, as well as hearing a Testimony of Hope from a former client.
At this event, Safe Haven experienced record-breaking attendance and revenue. Ashley Ward shared how her yearly giving greatly impacts so many women and children, just as it did for herself many years ago. With 370+ guests in attendance and $143,856 in total gifts and pledges, the event recognized the seriousness of domestic violence in our community but also celebrated the positive change to come!

Please save the date of Wednesday, December 5, 2018, as Safe Haven Ministries will host a Ribbon Cutting Celebration and Open House at their brand new facility.
1 in 4 women & 1 in 7 men have experienced some sort of domestic abuse in their lifetime. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, you can find immediate assistance at Safe Haven Ministries

The Recruiting Firm Advantage

When you’re searching for professionals for high-profile roles, the recruiting process often requires careful consideration. Even more so, when you’re personally looking for a step-up in your career, the job search requires even more research and resources.

Applying on a website or various job boards can feel like a black hole, job hunting can be stressful and time-consuming. Some positions for high-level companies are never listed or released to the public. They’re only available on a referral basis and some companies will even list exclusively with a staffing company. The only way to access these roles is through a recruiter. This is because many jobs are confidential, a company backfill, or sometimes a newly created role.

You can gain a competitive advantage in the job market working with a recruiter — They say it’s not what you know, but who you know. As skilled recruiters, we’re highly connected to hiring managers at top companies throughout Michigan and can help point you in the right direction. We can be both your eyes and ears in the job market! Even if you’re not actively looking for a new role, a recruiter can keep you in mind for future opportunities.
