The Haven is dual-programmed and has two emergency facilities: The Battered Women's Shelter, which serves victims of family violence, and the Rape Crisis Center, which serves victims of sexual assault.

Both programs have a 24-hour toll-free crisis line, staffed by trained personnel, that is available to anyone wishing to utilize the emergency facilities or the Outreach Programs.

Both programs serve nine counties in South Georgia, including Lowndes, Brooks, Colquitt, Echols, Berrien, Cook, Lanier, Clinch and Atkinson.

    I have an emotional support animal (ESA) dog. I need to know if I will be allowed to bring her with me if I can get out of a very nasty situation that I am in. I cannot leave my ESA dog here and allow her to be abused. I have all of the proper paperwork on her from my doctor.
