Open Haven provides a safe and confidential place for women who are survivors of domestic violence to gain emotional and practical support.
Our clients can visit the HUB on a weekly basis to meet other women in a supportive environment, share their journey and discuss or update their Restoration Plan with a case worker. This connection with others is a key part of the process as they build a new life.
A restoration plan is established for our client on their first meeting. It is part of the needs assessment. Our case workers understand their needs and create a plan that will meet those long term needs. After that first meeting the plan is updated at every appointment to track how they are going and ensure that progress is being made. If needs change then the plans are adjusted accordingly.
You can make a difference.
