Earlier this month Haven Hills entered into a partnership with the Los Angeles LGBT Center. Haven Hills will be included in the Center’s directory of referral shelters and hotlines, and identified as an LGBT-Sensitive Shelter. Studies show that domestic violence is prevalent in the LGBTQ community as it is among heterosexual couples.
Through this partnership Haven Hills will expand its counseling, support groups, advocacy services, and most notably the Crisis Shelter and Transitional Housing Program to heterosexual men and LGBTQ-identified women and men. Similarly, Haven Hills will refer LGBTQ-identified clients to the Center should they choose to meet with LGBT-domestic violence specialists. Haven Hill’s staff will also participate in LGBTQ-sensitive training to ensure clients are served respectfully.
This partnership marks a great leap forward in addressing the needs of all victims of domestic violence, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

Beginning May 1st Haven Hills will accept pets into our Haven Two Transitional Housing Program. Our intention is to shelter animals that victims have already created a bond with and avoid the loss that is associated with losing a pet in addition to all the trauma a victim is experiencing. Family pets will be considered on a case by case basis, considering the client’s ability to care for the pet, the animal’s history of behavior, the ability to safely and comfortably shelter the animal at our shelter, and the risk to any damage to our facility.
Haven Hills has partnered with Pet Vet Animal Hospital in Canoga Park. Dr. Brown has graciously offered his veterinary services pro bono to our clients’ pets while they reside at our transitional housing complex. And Canoga Park Pet Resort has offered to provide pet daycare for our client’s pets if they are out for extended periods of time for job interviews or appointments. Thank you Dr. Brown and Canoga Pet Resort!
