The mission of SafeHaven is to end domestic violence through safety, support, prevention and social change.

We create safety for women and children: immediate safety for now, permanent safety for the future.

SafeHaven operates the only domestic violence shelters in Tarrant County. Without us, the women and children fleeing the horrors of domestic violence would have nowhere to go and no way to escape the cycle of abuse. Through SafeHaven, they find the safety, shelter, support and independence they need.

Established through the 2006 merger of The Women’s Shelter and Women’s Haven, SafeHaven’s shelters have served domestic violence victims in Fort Worth, Arlington and the surrounding areas for almost four decades. As the oldest and largest Tarrant County organization providing services at no cost to domestic violence victims at their children, SafeHaven helps women rebuild their lives and move from fear to freedom.

With two 24 hour emergency shelters, counseling, legal services, children’s programs and more, SafeHaven provides the only shelters in Tarrant County specifically for victims of domestic violence. Through our outreach, education, support and prevention services, we are making progress to reduce and end domestic violence.
