Haven House


Haven House was founded in 1979 by the Coalition for Victims of Domestic Violence (now known as the Erie County Coalition Against Family Violence).

For over 35 years, Haven House has been working to prevent domestic violence/intimate partner violence and promote peace in the home. Services are based on a continuum of care ranging from emergency shelter in a confidential location to long term Transitional Housing. The continuum of care includes a very extensive counseling and advocacy program that includes many satellite locations throughout Erie County. Haven House is a recognized leader in the provision of services and staff are available to meet with groups and organizations to create new and exciting partnerships and collaborations.

Information can be empowering and for anyone that is feeing unsafe in their relationship, our Hotline staff are available 24 hours a day at (716) 884–6000 to provide information and support.

For non-emergency calls of inquiry, please make contact at (716) 884–6002.

Please pass along these numbers to anyone in need because most victims of domestic violence are unaware of the resources that are available and how to secure help and emergency shelter. We can join together and make our community safe by ensuring that resources are easy to access.
