    CHURCH CERTIFICATION

    Creating a Safe Haven is the first-of-its-kind program designed to help faith communities develop the skills and a plan for how they would respond when supporting a victim or survivor of domestic violence. It also helps churches engage in measures to prevent violence from happening in the first place. Receiving the certification ensures that your faith community has the tools they need to effectively prevent and respond to issues
    of domestic violence.

    There are two primary components of the certification program:

    • adopting a Domestic Violence Prevention Response Plan
    • sending a team to the in-person certification training

    *COST $10 /person (Includes Lunch)
