Goal

The goal of the Haven of Hope is to provide safety, confidentiality, short-term housing and advocacy for woman and children fleeing domestic abuse.  The Haven also provides outreach programs for those in our community who are not residing at the safe home but who need assistance with legal or personal issues surrounding domestic violence.

Families will have the time and freedom to explore options and determine what is best for them.  Advocates are available 24 hours a day to support and assist with obtaining helpful resources and opportunities to create a life free from abuse.

Who we serve

We serve women, men, and children – mainly from Goodhue County and the surrounding area.  Only women and children under 18 may stay at our safe home, but our outreach and legal services are available to anyone affected by family violence.

Some of the families we serve are from other counties in Minnesota or Wisconsin.  It is sometimes necessary for a family to relocate to a different area when fleeing domestic violence.

Services

Our services are available whether or not you choose to stay in the shelter.  We offer these  services to families so they  may have the opportunity to live in a community of their choice with dignity, safety and hope for their future.
