SafeHaven operates two emergency shelters for survivors of domestic violence. Both shelters have a combined 174-bed capacity and offer: safety planning, living quarters, meals, clothing, transportation and medical/dental care referrals. In addition to protecting victims and creating multiple opportunities to achieve independence and self-sufficiency, SafeHaven of Tarrant County focuses on prevention by educating members of the community and engaging leaders to speak out.
A leader in the domestic violence field, SafeHaven operates specialized programs such as:
- SafeLiving, a transitional living program that successfully moves families from shelter to independence;
- SafeResponse, a 24/7 crisis intervention program available to hospitals and law enforcement;
- CampHeart, a weekend camping program for child victims;
