Advocacy with color.png


HAVEN offers advocacy to assist survivors in a range of challenges they may encounter. Advocates can help survivors navigate obstacles to finding housing after an abusive relationship, accessing physical and mental healthcare services, gaining financial independence, and legal processes including child custody. Advocates are also able to provide emotional support when conflicting feelings arise about their abusive intimate partners and safety planning to navigate dangerous situations and potential triggers. Community-based advocates provide confidential services to people of all genders, ages and backgrounds who are experiencing violence.

HAVEN offers individual, family, and group therapy to participants who screen into our services. Counseling services are completely free and confidential. Sessions focus on the needs of each participant, including overcoming trauma and abuse, adjusting to stressors, building healthy relationships, and making changes. Unfortunately, at this time we are not scheduling new sessions. However, if you are interested in counseling at HAVEN, please connect with your advocate to get on the waiting list.

Healthy Relationships Education

The Empowerment Project (TEP) is an initiative of HAVEN. This program is designed to empower youth, educators, and the general community as they gain the critical knowledge, skills, and tools that equip them to prevent violence by promoting healthy relationships of all kinds. To view our 5th-12th grade curriculum and educators' trainings, please visit the 'For Schools' tab. For additional healthy relationships materials, you can visit the 'For Students and Parents' tab as well as our Instagram @TheEmpowermentProject_HAVEN



HAVEN was founded in 1981 by a small group of concerned citizens who established a 24-hour crisis line to address the need for crisis support and safety planning for those experiencing domestic and sexual violence in The Dalles and surrounding communities. Since then, the agency has grown to become the regional provider of comprehensive support and advocacy for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking; as well as the regional provider of sexual assault and rape prevention education. HAVEN’s mission is to provide safe and supportive services to those affected by interpersonal and sexual violence by empowering survivors and our community through advocacy, education, and prevention.


HAVEN is the only DVSA organization in an area comprised of rural and frontier communities—a 6,125 square mile area in north central Oregon that includes Wasco, Sherman, Gilliam, and Wheeler Counties.
