Domestic Violence Services
Each year, Tri-Valley Haven receives approximately 4,000 calls for help. That is approximately 11 crisis calls every day, from local survivors in need. Trained staff or volunteers handle crisis calls compassionately and competently, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
If you are not in immediate physical danger, but are in a threatening or abusive environment and would like to talk to someone, you may call Tri-Valley Haven’s 24-Hour Crisis Line anytime, day or night at 925.449.5842 or 1.800.884.8119.
Tri-Valley Haven shelters women and children who are victims of violence and in need of a safe, confidential location providing supportive services. The Haven’s shelter, aptly named Shiloh which means peace, has 30 beds. All TVH shelters accept families with boys and girls up to the age of 18 years. Each resident is assigned a counselor who works individually with her and her children. Case managers help clients with housing, legal, vocational, and financial needs. Each child at Shiloh receives an initial assessment to evaluate their physical and emotional needs. Once clients are safe and making progress, they are promoted to our transitional housing before graduating to permanent housing.
FOR ALL SHELTER INQUIRIES PLEASE CALL OUR CRISIS LINE AT 1-800-884-8119
Advocacy forms the backbone of interventions to support victims of intimate partner violence and end the violence in their lives. Tri-Valley Haven advocates provide a lifeline to anyone in an abusive relationship. Advocates provide confidential services to victims, helping them navigate the court system and strategize for their safety. Haven advocates address a range of issues that victims must negotiate: housing, physical and mental health needs, financial support, children’s issues, etc. Advocates also support survivors as conflicting feelings arise about their abusive intimate partners. Tri-Valley Haven also offers self-help support groups which provide important assistance to victims ending abuse in their relationships.
As part of our mission, Tri-Valley Haven believes prevention is key. We teach classes on how to recognize the dynamics and pervasiveness of domestic violence and sexual assault. The Haven educates Tri-Valley middle and high school students on critically important violence prevention topics in a safe and age-appropriate manner. Tri-Valley Haven Preventionists demonstrate bystander intervention methods as well as options to seek help. Haven staff work closely with local school districts to keep students safe.
Currently, assistance is available for survivors of domestic violence and formally incarcerated survivors of sexual assault. Assistance may include overdue rental payments, utility bills, and/or assistance with other expenses necessary for an individual’s self-sufficiency (e.g., car repairs, gas/food gift cards, etc). Applicants must be in the immediate Tri-Valley Area (Livermore, Dublin, Pleasanton).

Tri-Valley Haven offers a variety of counseling and support group services in the belief that while healing is the necessary first step in re-building broken lives, more help must be made available to empower people to regain their sense of self, their sense of pride, and their sense of accomplishment.
When privacy is required or desired, we offer one-on-one therapy sessions with professional therapists for both adults and children, to address all domestic violence or sexual assault-related issues. Counseling sessions are initially free, and then available on a sliding scale.
