Prevention & Education Program

Haven House was founded in 1964 and was the first shelter of its kind in the United States. It has served as a prototype for many other shelters nationally. It has also hosted interested individuals from all over the world. Our primary purpose is to assist battered women and their children by providing safe shelter, counseling services for both adults and children, follow-up support, and education about domestic violence so that when they leave Haven House, they have the tools to live their lives free of violence. Our secondary purpose is to educate the public about the problem of domestic violence and advocate for the needs of battered women with makers of public policy. It is Haven House\'s philosophy that battered women are not \'\'sick\'\' and do not need treatment. They have a situational problem that is not their fault.
