SafeHaven’s mission is to end domestic violence through safety, support, prevention and social change. SafeHaven of Tarrant County provides 24-hour care at two emergency shelters in Tarrant County specifically for victims of domestic violence. With a 164-bed total capacity, 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. Through housing programs families can move to a secure environment while simultaneously obtaining life skills, education and improved employment opportunities.
