Serving Victims and Families in Crisis

Victims of crimes as well as families in crisis need a safe place to receive necessary services.

In the past, victims of violent crime suffered not only the sense of being violated but were re-traumatized by the system. They were shuttled from agency to agency to relate their violation over and over before receiving needed services and/ or being able to assist in the prosecution of the perpetrator.

H.A.V.E.N. Center was developed to lessen a victim’s trauma and provide a safe location where a victim could be examined by trained medical staff, be questioned by a trained forensic interviewer and linked to any needed service, all in one place. The creation of the center has not only reduced the trauma to the victim, it has also increased the number of arrests and prosecution of the perpetrators.

H.A.V.E.N. Center has become a caring, safe haven for abused children and adult victims of crime, as well as those in crisis.
