Temporary Shelter

Temporary Shelter: 

The United Nations views the provision of shelter and other services as a critical part of states’ obligation to protect victims of violence. In addition, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, for example, calls on governments to “provide well-funded shelters and relief support for girls and women subjected to violence, as well as medical, psychological and other counseling services and free or low-cost legal aid, where it is needed, as well as appropriate assistance to enable them to find a means of subsistence.” Where states have failed to ensure the availability of adequate services for victims of domestic violence, such services are generally provided by NGOs.

In order to fill in this gap referred above, Safe Haven Shelter project will provide free temporary shelter for domestic violence victims for up to 30 days. For individuals suffering from domestic violence, calling for help may be one of the most difficult calls they ever make.  Yet, that phone call is only the beginning of the journey toward a violence free life.  Safe Haven Shelter will be that stepping stone between the life you want to leave behind and your hope for a new beginning. The shelter will offer comprehensive programs that include: Counseling, support groups, entrepreneurial skills, career counseling, life skills, legal advice and referral services and childcare. Safe Haven Shelter will be a source of hope for those in need of sanctuary from abusive situations.
