I have watched SafeHaven of Tarrant County transform the lives of hundreds of Women and Children, it is a pleasure to be a part of such an outstanding organization. The staff at the Fort Worth shelter are amazing, they go above and beyond to do everything they can for the clients. They truly care. Amazing!

I find the people who work at SafeHaven to have kind, compassionate demeanors. They want nothing more than to spread the word about their mission and truly help people in the community. Not only does SafeHaven provide shelter, education and counseling for victims, they are taking proactive measure with their preventative programs. My Aunt was murdered by her abusive husband. I wish she had found Safehaven before he took her from us. She would be alive today if so.

As President of the Mid-Cities Supporters of SafeHaven, I come in contact with the staff at the shelters and the executive staff that are there to counsel and help each client get on their feet and into a new life for theirself and for their children. The staff is trained and they have to be strict with the clients in order to protect them from the harm of their abuser, by setting rules. If the client doesn't follow the rules, I feel sure that they feel that they are still be abused, but I preconcieve that as doing their job to protect and encourage the client to move forward, to be safe and strong to tackle the difficulty of being abused. Rules have to set and followed to protect everyone.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the service and contact with the clients as we give the staff and clients a "Mother's Day Out"; taking food to be served on the week-ends so that the staff and the mothers do not have to cook or go out to feed their family. Take books and games to the children and enjoy time with them and visit with their mothers are take them to shop, etc.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage more individuals to donate more or their time and funds to provide additional staff to service the needs of the clients and hopefully improve the services for each person.

I thought this was such an outstanding place until I heard that the employees at the Fort Worth site continue the cycle of abuse. If you as the majority of the women who have left the site they will tell you the people at Safe Haven do not care about you and make sure you know it. They have their picks. The ones they like get help and the ones they don't get talked down to and are made to feel uncomfortable there. The counselors are great but the house staff has become almost as bad as the abusers.

The Great!

Make sure that the women who work there are concerned about the people and not just there for a check.
