Domestic Violence Intervention
Accountability and education for batterers.
Haven House facilitates a state-certified, education-based program to men who have been court ordered to attend a Batterer Intervention Program. The program consists of 36 group sessions and has specific requirements that participants must meet. Haven House Advocates also provide regular contact and assistance to victims of these batterers.
The Haven House Batterer Intervention Program continues to see an increase in young men and fathers being referred into the program. While the focus of these classes is accountability for their behavior, it also provides the participants with non-violent communication tools as well as education regarding the impact witnessing violence has on children.
