Helping women and children find freedom from domestic abuse.
Safe Haven Ministries
Safe Haven Ministries began in 1990 with a very important mission: to end domestic abuse. Motivated by Christ’s love, they provide a place of refuge and support for women and children throughout West Michigan who have experienced or who are currently experiencing domestic abuse.
Safe Haven’s services include emergency shelter housing, support groups, case management, children’s programming, safety planning, and additional resources to educate and empower their clients to begin their healing journey. They also provide a 24/7 hotline to help individuals needing shelter and support.
In one year, Safe Haven served 431 women and 46 children, answered 2,114 calls made to the hotline, and provided 5,690 nights of safety in their emergency shelter.
With a strong belief that ending abuse starts with prevention and education, Safe Haven provides a variety of training and assistance programs, with a strategic focus on high school and middle school students. They provide healthy relationship education classes in over 50 classrooms across 14 different schools, equipping students with the necessary skills to promote safe and healthy relationships within their communities.
