Haven House is located in Poplar Bluff, MO
Haven House has 31 beds available for adults and children who are seeking shelter or forced from their homes due to violence. While in the shelter, adult survivors have the opportunity to safety plan and set goals for their families. They may join a peer support group or participate in individual counseling. Advocates will be available to help with community referrals. Shelter, meals, and hygiene items are provided to all residents at no cost.
Not everyone who utilizes Haven House is in need of shelter. For those who need outreach resources, advocates are available to meet with them individually and discuss the dynamics of domestic violence, its effects on the family, and the most common experiences of those who have been victimized.
Great Expectations Foundation rewarded them with a $2,500 grant to help with the expansion of their program through a community education project within the 5 counties they serve. Their community goals align with that of the Great Expectations Foundation.
