If you are reading this page, more than likely you or someone you know needs help. Maybe you’ve just been raped. Maybe you were attacked or assaulted. Maybe you’ve had an abusive partner for a while. Or maybe something happened a while back that you are just now ready to confront.
No matter how scared, hurt, angry, humiliated or desperate you feel right now, you need to know that this is not your fault. You didn’t ask for your boyfriend to hit you. You didn’t ask for your spouse to abuse you. You didn’t ask to be raped. No human being asks for this, and no human being deserves to be treated this way.
Despite the confusing emotions you may be experiencing, there is one thing you can be sure of: There are people here to help you. And the sooner you can get that help, the sooner you can regain control of your life.
You’ve just taken the first, and possibly the hardest, step – you’ve turned to somebody for help. That is the reason why HAVEN is here. To provide assistance, comfort and support to people like you, and help you begin living a violence-free life.
