The Haven’s mission, to create homes free from abuse, began at its inception in 1977. Since that time, the Haven has assisted thousands of courageous survivors and their children in creating safe homes. Tri-Valley Haven welcomes all survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, homelessness and poverty, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, age, religion, class, creed or disability. TVH provides a broad range of safety net services to survivors including shelter, food, counseling and case management. The Haven works to remove barriers that prevent survivors from obtaining equal access to services. The Haven’s offices and shelters are ADA compliant and we have multilingual staff. If a survivor speaks a language that is not spoken by any staff, the Haven will use the Alameda County Language Line to communicate with and serve the survivor.

Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors used by one individual intended to exert power and control over another individual in the context of an intimate or family relationship. Domestic violence involves more than one or even several isolated incidents of violence. It involves an interrelated pattern that includes a wide variety of abusive behaviors and usually increases in frequency and intensity over time.
When a person leaves an abusive relationship, they often have nowhere to go. For many, the only choices are staying in the abusive environment, going to a shelter or living on the street. Tri-Valley Haven’s shelters provide immediate safety, respite and supportive services. The Haven also offers counseling for victims of abuse. Tri-Valley Haven’s 24-hours crisis hot-line is answered by a trained Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Crisis Counselor anytime day or night. If you are in an abusive relationship, or if you just have questions, a Tri-Valley Haven advocate is here to help.
No one deserves to be sexually assaulted or abused ever. If you have experienced sexual assault, it is not your fault and you are not alone. Tri-Valley Haven is here to help.
Sexual assault is a term used to describe a range of violent crimes, including rape, attempted rape, incest, molestation, spousal rape, statutory rape and any unwanted sexual contact. Sexual assault is not about sex, but about power and control. Anyone can be a survivor of sexual assault. Tri-Valley Haven is dedicated to aiding all survivors.
Tri-Valley Haven offers services for individuals and families who are homeless or in severe economic need, including shelter, a food pantry, and transitional housing. We believe in effectively aiding homeless individuals and families by creating a pathway to solve their challenges and heal their trauma. The Haven works to empower individuals effected by poverty so they become self-sufficient and graduate into stable, permanent housing.
There are a large and rising number of Tri-Valley residents who lack a safe place to call home. In a state with vast amounts of wealth, more than 150,000 Californians sleep in shelters, cars, or on the street. Homelessness is becoming a common fixture in the East Bay and Tri-Valley areas. Over 40% of homeless families have children.
