The Haven works cooperatively with numerous agencies and organization throughout the Northern Neck and Essex County.. These allied agencies include local law enforcement agencies, medical personnel, court personnel, mental health agencies, Commonwealth Attorneys, and Victim/Witness personnel. Local Departments of Social Services throughout our service area play a key role in providing support services to individuals at our shelter. We participate in the various resource councils throughout our service area who work together to coordinate the provision of the limited available support. The Haven believes strongly that our ability to provide the best possible safety for survivors depends on our ability to work cooperatively with others within the community who are involved in the lives of those we serve.
