DAMES Safehaven is not just a shelter; it’s a symbol of hope, resilience, and the unwavering commitment of DAMES, Inc. to empower women and make a positive impact. The concept for Safehaven was born from the pressing need to provide a safe refuge for women who have experienced domestic violence, human trafficking, and other distressing situations. We recognized that women needed a place to heal, regain their independence, and rebuild their lives. Thus, DAMES Safehaven was conceived as a safe space where women could find solace, support, and a fresh start.
Expanding Nationwide: Our Vision
While the first DAMES Safehaven is located right here in our community, our vision extends far beyond local boundaries. We believe that every woman, no matter where she resides, should have access to a sanctuary of safety and support. Our long-term plan is to buildSafehavens all over the country, ensuring that women in need have a place to turn to in times of crisis. We aim to create a network of these shelters, making the healing and empowerment provided by DAMES Safehaven accessible to women nationwide.
