All persons have a right to safety and freedom from violence. The Green Haven Shelter for Women provides a safe and supportive shelter program for women (and any dependent children) experiencing abuse.
Who We Serve
Self-identifying women with or without dependent children who are experiencing violence.
Includes: cisgender, transgender, non-binary, and two-spirit regardless of sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, or religious belief.
Emancipated Youth (ages 16-18) also qualify.
Dependent Children: Under the age of 18 including male, female, trans, and non-binary.
Throughout this page, we use the term women and the pronouns she/her to refer to all self-identifying women. We want to acknowledge that rates of gender-based violence are alarmingly high within the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and we offer support to any person who self-identifies as a woman or non-binary.
Shelter Capacity and Information
A state of the art building that ensures residents access to security, comfort, and supportive services.
Six single rooms and four double rooms available for family groups. We offer a six-week stay with the potential for extension.
Our rooms are accessible and all basic needs are provided to the residents.
Staff are on site 24/7 and offer ongoing safety planning. We connect our residents with supportive services and program referrals.
Shelter Intake Process
Accessing shelter services can feel like an overwhelming process for those already coping with trauma and experiencing violence.
We have created a guide and a list of expectations to help ease the process and to help reduce stress for our future residents.
