Together We Rise
At its core, HAVEN is committed to advocating for survivors on their path to freedom from violence. For over 35 years, we have worked to provide safe and supportive services to those affected by domestic and sexual violence by empowering survivors and our community through advocacy, education, and prevention.
Today more than ever, we commit ourselves to this work.
HAVEN believes that all people have the right to violence-free lives. Domestic violence, teen dating violence, sexual assault, trafficking, stalking, and child abuse should never be tolerated or condoned. These acts have a devastating effect on survivors, their families, and society as a whole.
Violence cannot end so long as oppression continues. Equity cannot be achieved so long as people are kept in the margins. As a movement, we must interrupt and dismantle oppression in all its forms.
We will not tolerate the marginalization of any person or group. Now, and always, we commit ourselves to supporting survivors of every race, age, gender identity, ability, sexual orientation, faith, income level, immigration status, ethnicity, and national origin. We continue to strive to uphold social justice and equity for all.
Together, we stand with survivors of domestic and sexual violence, especially those most vulnerable and with limited access to services, safety and protection.
Together, we reject the normalization of oppressive attitudes, language, and actions.
Together, we celebrate the rich diversity of people in this country and the vitality and strength they bring to our communities and society.
Together, we embrace that caring for ourselves is an act of self-preservation, and that self-care is necessary and central to the work that we do.
Together, we rise.
Ultimately, a healthy community is ours to create. Through culturally sensitive awareness, creative solutions, education, and communicating proactive behaviors that establish intolerance of violence with those around us, we make our community safer. The more people that take action, the closer we get to that goal.
We are here to listen. We are here to help. To speak to an advocate, 24 hours/7 days a week, please call the HAVEN Crisis Line. All our services are free and confidential.
