Freedom Haven

Where you are enough

Inspiring domestic violence survivors to turn fear into safety,
helplessness into strength and belief that they are enough

Freedom

How You Can Help:

Each day, domestic violence takes from its victims.  In many instance victims lose everything, including their homes. Freedom Haven provides a safe place for survivors and their children while they overcome the trauma caused by domestic abuse and embark upon their journey of recovery.

To shelter, feed and counsel one domestic abuse victim costs $142 per day — or an average of $2,840 for their entire stay at the emergency shelter.

Monetary Donations:

Every dollar of your tax-deductible gift goes to serve domestic violence victims and their children. Your contribution will provide operating expenses to help get survivors to safety and once safe, provide them with comprehensive programs and services.

Nationally 1 in 4 women experience domestic violence in their lifetime

Domestic violence is one of the primary causes of homeless for women and their children in the United States.  According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, between 22 and 57% of women and children are homeless at some point in their lives due to domestic violence. 

While over 5,500 victims are served by local DV programs on a given day in California, over 1,000 service requests go unmet due to reduced funding for these programs.

Victims who leave their abusive partner multiple times due to domestic violence often experience multiple events of homelessness.
