SafeHaven’s mission is to end domestic violence through safety, support, prevention and social change.
SafeHaven is the largest and most comprehensive agency in Tarrant County providing services at no cost to domestic violence victims. SafeHaven provides 24-hour care at two emergency shelters in Arlington and Fort Worth to families fleeing violent situations. The holistic shelters provide a comprehensive continuum of care for the women and children who would otherwise be forced to remain in dangerous situations. Trained bilingual advocates respond 24 hours a day to victims who call SafeHaven’s toll-free crisis hotline. There is free access to counseling in both English and Spanish for those who are currently experiencing domestic violence, as well as those who have previously been victims of domestic violence.
When leaving a shelter, SafeHaven provides survivors with a safety net of services and support to establish and sustain self-sufficiency. Through housing programs, families can move to a secure environment while simultaneously obtaining life skills, education, and improved employment opportunities.
SafeHaven’s professional education staff also provides domestic violence prevention programs to high school students through Tarrant County. Through our outreach, education, support services and prevention programs, we are making progress to reduce and end domestic violence.
I appreciate SafeHaven because it is so much more than a shelter. They have everything we need as we move forward on this journey.Felicia, 36
