In the United States three women are murdered by their current or former partners every day. Intimate partner violence is the leading cause of female homicide and injury-related death during pregnancy. Domestic violence affects families at all socio-economic and education levels, and all ethnicities. Its impact on families is enormous and devastating, and the impact on the community as a whole is equally devastating.
Haven Hills provides safety, shelter, and support to all victims of domestic violence while working to break the cycle of abuse. We save lives, inspire change, and transform victims to empowered survivors.

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.
