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.
