Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Emergency Shelter

Domestic violence is the leading cause of homelessness for women and children in the United States. Nationally, up to 50% of homeless women report that it is the immediate cause of their
displacement.

When a survivor enters our shelter, they create a safety plan to strategize how to avoid or leave unsafe situations. Staff also performs a needs assessment, identifying obstacles the individual faces. Then, we assist residents in meeting their self-identified goals (the primary goal being obtaining a safe residence).

Population(s) Served
Families
Parents
Non-adult children
Ethnic and racial groups

Seekhaven’s outreach advocacy services are available during and after crises to support our clients in obtaining safety and maintaining stability. We meet our clients where they are, encouraging them to set the pace and choose the direction to go. We believe that each individual is the expert in their situation, meaning they know which decisions are safest to make. Outreach services include support groups, legal advocacy, financial assistance, safety planning, counseling referrals and accessing our 24 hour hotline.

Population(s) Served
Ethnic and racial groups
Caregivers
Families
Parents

Seekhaven contracts with local counselors versed in
domestic violence and sexual assault to provide free counseling to survivors. We also offer weekly support groups in our chapel space. We understand the
repercussions of abuse and encourage long-term
emotional healing.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Seekhaven is currently developing relationships with local hospitals and law enforcement to soon officially implement Sexual Assault Response Teams (SARTs). This multi-disciplinary approach not only supports a survivor in receiving medical attention, but also provides an opportunity to obtain forensic evidence of an assault and supportive services afterward.

In response to an assault, our sexual assault advocates accompany a survivor in receiving a forensic exam, performed by a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. Our advocate then offers a variety of supportive services, ranging from providing clothing and communicating to hospital staff for the individual, to arranging follow up services like counseling and legal advocacy.

An operational SART will minimize re-traumatization for victims of rape and sexual assault and provide support on their path of long term healing.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Seekhaven adopted the Lethality Assessment Program (LAP), an evidence based, lethality assessment and
referral protocol in response to intimate partner violence. LAP is executed with the help of first
responders in the community, including Moab City Police and Moab Valley Multicultural Center. These partners assess a victim’s danger and direct high risk individuals to Seekhaven’s hotline. Immediate services include a 24 hour safety plan and, if needed, emergency shelter.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Relocating after a crisis is a difficult thing to do, especially in our region. As of winter of 2018, Seekhaven
finalized a program to assist survivors in preventing homelessness and securing long term housing.
Our transition assistance program covers moving expenses, rent and utilities to support survivors in finding sustainable funds.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Seekhaven prioritizes prevention programming in the Moab community. We utilize Healthy Relationships, an evidence based curriculum to educate youth about consent, trust and healthy boundaries. We presented to all 7th, 8th and 9th graders in Grand County, as well as the 6th graders at Moab Charter School.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Seekhaven is currently developing surveys regarding sexual harassment to be dispersed to the local workforce. After receiving responses, we will use this information to reach out to local organizations to offer assistance in overhauling their sexual harassment policies. We will also offer bystander training, trauma informed training and DV/SA 101 trainings. With this education, local organizations will have the tools to better support their employees.
