Safe Haven Ministries
Safe Haven Ministries offers comprehensive domestic violence services for individuals who have experienced or are experiencing domestic violence. Family advocates meet survivors wherever they are in their journeys and empower them through individual case management, psycho-educational and therapeutic support groups, safety planning, legal advocacy, crisis intervention (including emergency safe shelter when necessary) and connection to other community resources. Through our nonresidential and residential programs, we offer direct client care to survivors and their children through a trauma-informed empowerment model, to help survivors not only achieve the goals they set for themselves, but regain confidence and independence.
We also offer prevention and outreach programs to the entire community. Our Teen Dating Violence Prevention Program educates students in middle schools, high schools, and universities about intimate partner violence and healthy relationships. By educating students early on, we hope to prevent future instances of domestic violence. We also offer programs for businesses, faith communities, and other agencies to increase community awareness of how to recognize, respond, and refer instances of abuse. We hope that by working with community partners to create a culture of violence prevention through trainings and resources, we will stop abuse before it can begin.
Safe Haven Ministries is a faith-based organization, but offers services to all individuals without discrimination. All services to Safe Haven clients are confidential and provided at no cost to the participant for as long as they choose to engage. Your gift today will go directly towards ending domestic abuse in Kent County and West Michigan.
