Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The number one goal and vision at HAVEN is to create a world of safe, equal and accountable communities where sexual assault and domestic violence do not exist. We will reach our goal by the following actions:

- By providing prevention education and professional development services
- By working collaboratively with the community to achieve our HAVEN vision
- By providing comprehensive and culturally sensitive services to child and adult survivors and their families
- By providing youth intervention services to support respectful, loving and safe relationship behaviors

We will continue to work toward our goals by executing HAVEN’s programs:

Prevention Education – Trained educators work with young people, teachers and parents to equip them with tools to build relationships based on mutual respect and to understand what consent means. They also provide professional training to the general public on the dynamics of domestic & sexual violence.

Crisis and Support Line – Open around the clock, 365 days per year. The support line provides crisis intervention, understanding and support, referrals and information to those affected by domestic and sexual violence offered by trained counselors.

Residential Program – Oakland County’s only 24-hour emergency shelter exclusively for domestic violence and sexual assault victims and their children.

Safe Therapeutic Assault Response Team (START) – Forensic nurse examiners and first responders provide a comprehensive forensic exam, compassionate emotional support, therapeutic medical care and evidence collection.

Social Action –First responders provide immediate crisis intervention and emotional support for their victims and families at Oakland County hospitals and police stations following an assault. Advocates help with safety plans, accessing resources, teaching victims their rights, personal protection orders and accompanying them to their legal proceedings.

Counseling Program – non-residential program serves children and adults that have been affected by domestic and sexual violence. Specialized groups and individual counseling provide information, support and insight into the dynamics of abuse and the myriad of feelings and issues that accompany it.

In 2014, HAVEN raised $3,333,582 to provide services to nearly 30,000 people in and around Oakland County. All services offered are free of charge and can be accessed by calling our 24-hour crisis and support line at 877-922-1274. While the need continues to grow, as demonstrated by a 20% increase in calls to the crisis and support line from June 2014 to June 2015, trained and licensed staff at HAVEN are ready to take all calls from individuals that need help or information; concerned family members or friends looking for resources; employers wanting to help an employee or even those interested in prevention education.

The more we continue to raise funds, the greater our capabilities and capacity will be to help more individuals. A great indicator of capability is our new 36,000 square ft. facility that will provide comprehensive services for victims, their children and the community. This new facility will not only allow HAVEN to offer services from one main location, but we’ve also worked to strengthen partnerships with law enforcement, legal services, health care providers, employment resources, transitional housing and many others in order to bring additional services directly to our clients.

For 40 years, our organization has strived to do what is right, what is best for survivors. We have worked to stay on top of best practices. We listen to survivor’s stories and needs to inform and guide our work. We read, we explore, we search, we learn, we grow, we challenge, and we think. Staying still and sticking with the status quo has never been good enough. We recognize that social justice work is hard and never ending so we stay committed to the challenge.

What worked in 1975 doesn’t necessarily apply in 2015. A great example of that change is in the realm of prevention education. In the last 10 years we have moved from a risk reduction tertiary approach (how not to get raped) to a primary approach (how to stop rape from happening). Last year, nearly 13,000 individuals were trained in prevention education. For those of us who have worked in this field for a long time, this is exciting! This type of best practice approach addresses the root causes of the violence and propels us closer to its elimination.
