Who We Serve

Safe Haven is committed to serving the needs of all survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, including those from diverse populations. Staff and volunteers undergo extensive training to assist women, children and men with specialized needs. Safe Haven does not refuse services to anyone based on area of residence, but our primary service area is Shawano County. Safe Haven collaborates with similar programs including the programs with the Stockbridge Munsee and Menominee Tribes.

The emergency shelter is a five bedroom, 24 bed facility that provides victims of domestic violence and sexual assault a safe place to review options and reflect on their goals. The shelter provides for all the victim’s needs, including food, hygiene products, and all household needs. All services are provided free of charge. The shelter is open 24 hours per day, every day of the year. Staff is available at all hours to assist residents and answer the crisis lines.

As an active community leader, Safe Haven offers training and education on domestic violence and sexual assault to various groups, workplaces, faith communities and organizations. Through Prevention Education, Advocates work within the schools to bring an anti-violence message to students and staff alike.
