This is the time of year when we are grateful for our warm safe homes and our loving family. For women and children facing domestic violence, this can be a very difficult time of year.  The good news is that HAVEN has been around for 33 years to help these families by providing safety with emergency shelter, counseling, legal support, emotional support, and referrals so that they can start a new life, free from abuse.

The equally good news is that there are things that you can do to help.  Below are some ideas on how to give back this holiday season.
