Talk to Someone at HAVEN
HAVEN has a hotline called the Crisis and Support Line. This hotline can help you if you are a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault, or if you have questions or need resources to help a loved one. The Crisis and Support Line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. When you call, we can give you support, information and referrals to other agencies if necessary.
If you would like an appointment with HAVEN for any reason, call the Crisis and Support Line at 248-334-1290 (through Relay). Victims, friends, family or anyone can call the Crisis and Support Line for information.
The Crisis and Support Line is free.
Even after you have asked for help, it may be difficult for you. You may need medical attention. You may be leaving someone you have lived with for a long time. You may feel angry, embarrassed or really afraid. But help is available: Counselors at HAVEN are specially trained to address the safety needs and concerns of domestic violence and sexual assault survivors. Counselors may also work with supportive friends and family members who are dealing with their own feelings around the abuse of someone they love. Interpreters are provided for counseling.
We have ongoing support groups for our clients. For more information on our groups, please chat live with us or call the HAVEN 24-Hour Crisis and Support Line at 248-334-1290 (through Relay). Interpreters will be provided. Below are examples of support groups HAVEN offers:
Survivors of Domestic Violence
We have educational and support groups for people who have lived through and survived domestic violence. These groups meet every week for 1.5 hours. Join us.
Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Assault
We have two groups to help with adult survivors of childhood sexual assault, so if someone sexually abused you when you were a child, our first group will help you now that you are an adult. The second group will continue to help you with getting healthy.
WAVE (Women Against Violent Encounters)
Sometimes you have a lot of emotions about abuse. This group will help you get out these emotions so you can get healthy.
For mothers who have been victimized by domestic violence and are struggling with ongoing issues related to parenting children who have witnessed domestic violence.
Child Witness of Domestic Violence
The children’s group is designed for children who have been exposed to domestic violence. The purpose of the group is to help minimize the effect of domestic violence on children. Master’s-level therapists will use art, games and other interactive activities to help children learn to recognize and express their feelings and to identify healthy ways of coping with them. In addition, children will learn that the violence was not their fault and will develop a safety plan.
