Safe Havens is an interfaith organization that promotes hope and justice for victims and survivors of domestic violence and elder abuse.
We believe the faith community has a unique role to play in responding to and preventing domestic violence and elder abuse. Every faith community and faith leader can help victims and survivors use their faith as a resource, connect with community services, and overcome the many barriers to safety.
In order to realize this vision, Safe Havens:
Breaks the silence about domestic violence in the faith community
Connects faith leaders, service providers, and law enforcement
Empowers faith leaders
Trains congregations to support victims
Creates opportunities for healing
