safe haven. ramoth house.

With an organization like Safe Haven Ministries in the community, women that are victims of domestic violence have access to a confidential 24 hour emergency shelter called Ramoth House.

Since opening its doors in 1990, Ramoth House, has provided refuge and domestic violence services to over 5,000 women and children. There are eight rooms at the house where families can stay, and services such as educational and therapy support groups, case management, crisis intervention and legal advocacy are provided. Ramoth House also offers one-on-one counseling sessions with fees based on a sliding scale.

Ramoth House also offers programs for children staying at the shelter. These programs help them share their story in a safe environment, use non-violent problem solving skills, and develop stress management tools and an understanding of the cycle of abuse.

The shelter also provides in-services for women and children, which are different sessions or workshops to help the residents have a fun, stress free day. These sessions can be things like beauty consultations, art therapy or writing workshops.

"More than three women a day are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in the United States.
One in three adolescent girls in the US is a victim of abuse from a dating partner.
275 million children world wide are exposed to violence in the home.

Domestic abuse is more than a family issue, it's a community's issue.

Together we can end domestic violence."

These numbers are not okay. By making an online donation here for Safe Haven Ministries you are helping a woman and her children get the help they need. Stay tuned for more about Safe Haven and how they are ending domestic violence.

Be the change. Make the difference.
