Shiloh – A Safe Shelter

Need of the hour

One of Tri-Valley Haven’s most important service is our emergency shelter for families fleeing abuse in their homes. TRI-VALLEY HAVEN’s Domestic Violence Shelter, aptly named SHILOH, for peace, has been a vital community resource for decades, sheltering thousands of local survivors and their children fleeing abuse, while they heal.

After many years of housing families, the current shelter is falling apart. 

We need your help to rebuild the Haven’s shelter so local families in crisis will have a safe place to call home for decades to come.

“Everything you did for my family while we stayed at the shelter pushed me to finally break away [from my abuser]. Finally, my kids and I are safe. We live in peace! My sons are not growing up thinking domestic violence is normal. I am so grateful to Tri-Valley Haven. It saved my life. Now I share my story and advocate for survivors of domestic violence.”

“Patricia” is a recent graduate of Shiloh. She and her children received counseling, case management and life skills classes.

A Letter to our Friends

Dear Friends,

Tri-Valley Haven continues to support our community with an umbrella of services including shelter, food, counseling and legal services for individuals and families in need. Our efforts are enduring towards a mission of “Building Homes Free of Violence”. One of Tri-Valley Haven’s most important service is our emergency shelter for families fleeing abuse in their homes.

Tri-Valley Haven currently runs the only confidential domestic violence shelter in the Tri-Valley and the only shelter that accepts teenage boys as part of families. Unfortunately, after so many years of successfully housing families, the domestic violence safety shelter, aptly named “Shiloh” for peace, is in decline. The best and most economical way for Tri-Valley Haven to serve local families, and to meet the growing need for emergency shelter, is to build a new facility with 50% more capacity (we will have 45 beds instead of the current 30). The new shelter will also have designated counseling rooms, recreational rooms, a garden where residents can relax, and safe outdoor and indoor play areas for kids. (At any given time, half of our shelter residents are children).

Please consider donating to this important community project. We plan to break ground in 2023. You can contribute conveniently online at https://trivalleyhaven.org/donate, please select “Shelter Rebuild Campaign”, or use the enclosed envelope to mail in your tax-deductible check payable to Tri-Valley Haven.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions or if you would like to make an appointment to speak with me in-person about this vital project. I can be reached via email christine@trivalleyhaven.org or directly at (925) 667-2707.

Thank you for your impactful gift!

 

Sincerely,

Christine Dillman

Executive Director

Support the Rebuild Efforts

At any time, half of the shelter residents are children. By expanding the shelter capacity to 45 beds, from 30, this new shelter will help 50% more households, individuals and children to flourish and attain self-sufficiency. Dedicated play areas for children, groups, therapy rooms and a quiet room for reflection will be added.

 

At Shiloh, survivors heal and learn valuable skills such as budgeting, resume writing, nutrition management, parenting and self-esteem classes.  Over time, families become self-sufficient and no longer need the shelter. In the past decade  Tri-Valley Haven  has helped over 3,000 individuals and families in finding safe homes, free from violence.

With the generous support from people like you, we can build a new shelter. Shiloh will continue to be an integral part of Livermore, the Tri-Valley Area, and Alameda County. For decades to come, we will compassionately shelter thousands of individuals and families, breaking the cycle of domestic abuse.
