HealthMarkets is proud to support SafeHaven of Tarrant County and their mission to end domestic violence through safety, support, prevention and social change.
Established through the 2006 merger of The Women’s Shelter and Women’s Haven, SafeHaven’s shelters serve domestic violence victims in Fort Worth, Arlington and the surrounding areas. As the oldest and largest Tarrant County organization providing services at no cost to domestic violence victims and their children, SafeHaven helps women rebuild their lives and move from fear to freedom.
With two 24 hour emergency shelters, counseling, legal services, children’s programs and more, SafeHaven provides the only shelters in Tarrant County specifically for victims of domestic violence. Through our outreach, education, support and prevention services, they are making progress to reduce and end domestic violence.
In 2014, SafeHaven answered over 34,000 crisis hotline calls, protected 674 women and 862 children in emergency shelter, housed 264 women and children in its transitional living program, counseled and provided legal services to over 3,400 women and children at two resource centers, and educated 30,672 people, including more than 27,000 youth, on domestic violence prevention and available services.
