~ Promoting the safety of women, children, youth and families since 1978 ~
Haven Society provides services to women, children, youth and families who have experienced violence.
Every year over 2,500 women and children in the mid Vancouver Island area seek support to deal with issues of abuse and violence. Over the years, with the support of our community, Haven Society has evolved into a full service agency. Our programs provide everything from shelter to emotional support, counselling, advocacy, court accompaniment, and most importantly, a safe place to begin healing from the abuse.
Clients using Haven services can expect:
· Programs and services that support self-awareness, self-reliance, and self-esteem;
· A safe and welcoming atmosphere where they can begin the journey towards healing and non-violent living;
· A non-judgmental attitude that respects women’s right to make their own choices.
