Haven Women's Center enjoys support from numerous individuals and organizations in our community. Some of them provide financial support, others offer in-kind contributions and some work with us as collaborative partners in our work. Below is a partial list of these organizations and how they help us work to end violence against women.
united way of stanislaus
Haven Women's Center has been a partner agency of the United Way for many years. Through United Way, we receive grant funding for many of our programs, training opportunities, outreach and education opportunities, outreach and education opportunities and collaborative/networking through monthly Impact Council and Executive Director's meetings. We are proud to be a partner agency with other non-profits in Stanislaus County and are grateful for all the support United Way provides agencies in our community.
stanislaus family justice center (fjc)
Haven staff have been a part of the planning and implementation of the Family Justice Center (FJC) from the very beginning of the project. Under the leadership of Assistant District Attorney Carol Shipley and District Attorney Birgit Fladager, the project has become a reality with the center set to open in Oct. 2010. Haven will house staff at the FJC who will serve even more victims and survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with all the partners of the FJC and believe it will be a very successful endeavor.
As in the case of the Family Justice Center, Haven has been an active participant and partner in the Stanislaus County child advocacy center, the C.A.I.R.E. Center. Haven advocates respond to the center to work with families of child sexual assault victims to provide information, support and advocacy during a very difficult time. Additionally, staff participates in monthly multi-disciplinary interview team meetings and has attended national child abuse conferences as a team member.
turlock and modesto police departments
While Haven maintains excellent working relationships with all law enforcement agencies in the county, we have had particularly good and productive relationships with Modesto and Turlock police departments. Over the years, both departments have invited Haven staff in facilitating training with patrol officers and detectives. Additionally, both departments have provided officers to assist with training our volunteers and staff. These officers provide valuable information and insight into the profession of police work and how officers handle domestic violence and sexual assault investigations.
community services agency
The Stanislaus County Community Services Agency and Haven Women's Center have a long-standing partnership working together to serve TANF recipients who have been victims of domestic violence. Haven staff works as part of the Behavioral Health Services Team along with mental health and substance abuse experts to provide support and needed services to clients with barriers to workforce re-entry. CSA also provides funding support in the way of specialized contracts to offer domestic violence support services to families in need. We appreciate that county officials recognize the importance of providing support and services to these vulnerable populations and support Haven Women;s Center as we work toward our mutual goals.
stanislaus county health services agency
Haven Women's Center has had a long-standing relationship with the Health Services Agency and has been involved in many projects, collaborations and partnerships to advocate for the health concerns of battered women and rape victims. Haven Staff participate in the Maternal Child Health Advisory Council and the Stanislaus County Death Review Team as well as participating in agency health and information fairs and special projects. The Health Services Agency demonstrates its concerns for the victims of abuse in all its forms by offering training and education to medical and non-medical staff and ensuring the medical community continues to address the unique needs of victims of violence.
