For over 30 years, Child & Family Services Haven House has been working to promote peace in the home. Haven House provides safe, confidential services for victims of domestic violence (DV) and their children. Through direct services and community education and outreach, we work to ensure that all relationships embrace the principles of peace, respect and equality.

Haven House offers a broad range of residential and community-based services designed to empower victims and support them in seeking safety, self-determination, and justice. Haven House provides victims with the resources needed to rebuild their lives. Children are taught skills to cope with family crises and learn non-violent forms of conflict resolution.
