One in four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. Women are abused emotionally, financially, and physically in many of these situations. Abusers create an environment of fear and intimidation using verbal threats and physical violence, as well as controlling the financial resources. This makes it very difficult for anyone being abused to flee. The Haven helps women break free from their horrid conditions and offers an environment that helps them stay safe.
Having somewhere safe to hide from their abuser is VERY vital to women and children who are being abused. Many times, women leave quickly with their children while their partner is away. They take nothing more than the clothes on their backs in their desperate attempt to get away before being seen. While at The Haven they are provided food, shelter, clothing, and victim assistance. The annual Give Thanks for Your Safe Home Supply Drive collects supplies used by The Haven daily to make survivors feel welcomed, safe, and cared for.

Well it is about that time of the year again! As we head into the holiday season, we want to take a moment to focus on what Christmas is really about - when the hope of humanity was born. This Christmas, we want to invite you to join us in providing hope to families plagued by violence, hope for peace in their homes, hope for safety, and hope for a better tomorrow.
This program provides Christmas presents to families that are currently receiving services through The Haven. All families live below the poverty level and have no other means to provide Christmas gifts to their children. We cannot express how grateful the families are to receive such generosity from our community.
Persons wishing to participate are provided with a Christmas wish list of each family member. The wish list is an idea of what each family member would love to see under the tree this year. We have families of all sizes from 1 to 5. We ask that you deliver the gifts to The Haven on or before Friday, December 18, 2020. Gifts may be wrapped or unwrapped.
Cook or sponsor one of the holiday meals including Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, or New Year’s Day. Meals can be prepared by you, catered or a donation to cover the meal that is prepared by the families in shelter are all ways to help this holiday season. You can also contribute baked goods or special treats to our annual Santa Party where Santa visits the children in shelter.
We accept monetary donations by phone, online payment, mail, or in-person. Now more than ever we need monetary support. COVID-19 has greatly impacted financial donations to the agency. At a time when the demand for services has increased, we have experienced a decline in support. Any assistance will allow us to continue to provide for over 500 families suffering the affects of violence. Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 4279, Houma, LA 70361 or paid via Paypal on our website at www.havenhelps.org.
If you want to participate in any of the great programs listed above, please contact Julie Pellegrin at 985.872.0757 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve the lives of domestic violence and sexual assault survivors. Your generous donation will fund our mission. THANK YOU!
