Mission Statement


LaShawndia?s Safe Haven is the place where a woman in fear of her and her families safety can get relief; she can scream, shout, cry, talk and recover from the trauma of a domestic dispute. Current statistics on domestic violence state that the majority of women who are victims of domestic abuse do not have somewhere to go if they want to leave the situation. LSH gives them a short-term option to have time to sort out their next steps. For 72 hours, we are their safe haven. Clients now have time to decide what is best for them as they receive loving hospitality, counseling, and most of all an undisclosed, safe place to rest. LSH wants to focus on helping families find other options to living in abusive situations. We help with the initial crisis, and then refer them to community resources that will help them heal, and possible re-unite their families.
