A fortress with a heart

Child Now in our fourth decade, Tri-Valley Haven continues to be a vital community resource serving adults and children who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, or homelessness.

We are a safe place, above all, for people who need to be protected before they can begin moving forward. But we are also a place that is committed to doing more than merely healing a life that's hurting; we are committed to helping strengthen that life, and building a culture of personal empowerment for those who are most vulnerable.

We envision a world without violence. But rape, physical and mental abuse, and homelessness occur all too often - and in every community, regardless of class or color. It is likely, in fact, that in your neighborhood someone is alive because the Haven was there to help.

And so we stand strong here, a beacon in the Tri-Valley, protecting those in need, helping them to grow again, and seeking to build a more peaceful society.

One person, one family, one community at a time.
