HAVEN has been a partner with The Women’s Fund from its earliest days. Starting in 2002, The Women’s Fund has awarded grants to improve HAVEN’s facilities, supported programs focusing on emergency transportation and housing, provided funding for the START Program (Safe Therapeutic Response Team), and the First Night Program. Most recently, The Women’s Fund awarded a multi-year grant for its Plant the Seeds of Hope Program assuring that future victims of domestic violence have a safe haven. The Women’s Fund has been such a terrific partner of HAVEN’s for many years. Through the grant programming we have been able to support so many women who now more than ever need the support of the entire community. In addition to funding, many members of The Women’s Fund have also given their support via volunteerism, helping to make connections with other organizations or individuals, sharing information of our services and more. The Women’s Fund is a vital partner to HAVEN and our work to eliminate domestic and sexual violence.
