Safe Haven has run an Outreach program for over 15 years. Outreach provides an opportunity for members to connect with a helpful resource without accessing the residential shelter program.
The service is extended to anyone in need. We assist with: resume building, life-skills training, court proceedings, housing options, safety planning, and assistance with challenges stemming from trauma and/or abuse.
We currently have 3 outreach workers: two working with adults, and one with children. Using a trauma-informed approach, the team provides support, follow-up and outreach services to men, women, children, and gender non-conforming folks. The outreach worker with individuals to address the underlying causes of abuse in order to reduce rates of violence, and eliminate it altogether.
