Safe Haven’s shelter “Peggy’s Place” is in a confidential location. If you need shelter, call our 24-hour hotline 203-575-0036. Every effort is made to assure confidentiality and safety for the client. If the shelter is full or if the client is at risk in Waterbury, Safe Haven will network with other domestic violence programs to find temporary safe shelter for the client. In addition to shelter, Safe Haven provides food, toiletries and clothing for shelter families. Minimally, each client is offered individual counseling and safety planning every day. The client meets with her counselor at least once a week to address issues pertaining to her goals for housing, employment, legal remedies, benefits and daycare.
Adult clients are provided with services that include but are not limited to safety planning, intake and assessment, individual counseling and support groups. The advocate provides adults with available resources for mental health services, housing, health clinics, food and clothing, child care, job training, legal resources, public transportation, youth services and assistance with victim compensation.
