FOX 11 Community Cares: Safe Haven in Shawano
Safe Haven is a domestic abuse and sexual assault support center in Shawano that has been providing crisis intervention and outreach advocacy since 1992. An emergency shelter was added to programming in 2002 to provide victims with safe shelter, advocacy and counseling. Last year Safe Haven gave shelter to more than 100 women and children and offered outreach services to more than 500 men, women and children. Safe Haven is a non-profit organization and finds the in–kind donations and volunteer work done by people in the community truly valuable. Safe Haven expects to begin a capital campaign this year in order to expand their facilities and serve more people in the Shawano area.
