Safe Haven of Dallas received a new field from the Synthetic Turf Council

Safe Haven is a shelter and advocacy groups offering support for victims of domestic violence in Tarrant County.  While in Dallas for their annual meeting, the Synthetic Turf Council donated a new artificial turf field to the shelter, giving the children there an year-round, all weather outdoor space.  This short film covers the construction and the day of dedication at Safe Haven.
