Emergency Shelter

Valley Haven works to end conditions that seemingly perpetuate never-ending cycles of child abuse and neglect by providing a spacious home with highly trained caretakers to house and execute this kind of effort. By showing and teaching appropriate ways to trust and love each other, the children at Valley Haven will feel safe, begin to heal, and look more positively to their future. Each child will be provided with their own personal living space, daily meals and snacks, toiletries and clean clothing to call their own, easing the transition after the traumatic experiences they have endured.
