HAVEN’s mission is to “provide safe and supportive services to those affected by interpersonal and sexual violence by empowering survivors and our community through advocacy, education, and prevention.

HAVEN is the only nonprofit community-based organization providing comprehensive services to victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and trafficking in Wasco, Sherman, Gilliam, and Wheeler Counties. HAVEN also provides services to surrounding communities along the Columbia
River Gorge and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Reservation. The organization began in 1981 with a very small group of concerned citizens. One of the first services HAVEN offered was a 24-hour crisis-line, which continues today as vital part of our on-going safety net.


For over 36 years HAVEN has strived to provide a safe environment for survivors of domestic/dating violence, sexual assault, stalking and trafficking, and to educate the public about the issues surrounding victimization. We provide 24 hour advocacy, safety planning, and shelter screening every day of the week through our crisis line: 541-298-4789

The HAVEN office (drop-in facility) at 420 E. 3rd in The Dalles is open Monday through Friday 9am to 4pm. Individuals can meet one-on-one with advocates that are specialized and trained in; Aging and People with Disabilities, Domestic Violence that includes working with – Department of Human Services/Child Welfare and Self Sufficiency, Health & Intimate Partner Violence*, Housing/Shelter*, Legal/Court*, Sexual Assault* and Teen Advocacy*. (*Bilingual Advocate)

If you are a survivor we can offer emotional support, resources (see list to the right) as well as safe and confidential shelter.

If you have a friend, family member, or co-worker who is with an abusive partner, we can talk with you about how to best support them, as well as provide support to you.

If you are a community partner we are happy to share our knowledge of the dynamics of domestic/dating violence, sexual violence and what you can do to help create a community that supports survivors and does not tolerate abuse.

All services are free and confidential to survivors and secondary survivors of all ages and genders
