Thu, Apr 1st, 2021Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April has been designated as National Sexual Assault Awareness month since 2001.  Haven House joins with community partners to raise awareness of sexual assault, harassment and abuse. We know that prevention and intervention are the keys to reducing sexual violence in our community. We hope to help community members learn how they can be agents of change.   If you'd like more information or learn how you can help, please call 573-686-4873 and ask for Melody.      


Fri, Oct 1st, 2021Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which was established in 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.  At Haven House, we dedicate the month to increasing awareness of the crisis of domestic violence in our community, acknowledging and supporting survivors and being a voice for those who have not been heard.  Watch for updates regarding upcoming events that will be happening in October 2021.   If you are interested in participating or being part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, please contact us at 573-686-4873.


Sat, Sep 18th, 2021Annual Trail Ride Fundraiser

The Annual Haven House Trail Ride will be held Saturday, September 18, 2021 and will be presented by Drs. Rick and John Blaich at their family's Black River Ranch. This event has been a tradition since 1988.  Participants enjoy a beautiful guided trail ride, with barbecue and live music at lunch.  Riders collect pre-paid pledges and compete for great prizes, and everyone who registers with a minimum of $25 receives a commemorative t-shirt.  However, most riders will tell you that what they love the most is knowing that they are making a difference in the lives of those who have been victimized by domestic or sexual violence.  Each year, the proceeds are earmarked for general operating costs of maintaining our 31 bed shelter.  Regular riders will be receiving their pledge sheets in early August. For more information or to receive a pledge sheet, please call 573-686-4873.
