All of our employee’s points of view are key to our success, and inclusion is everyone’s responsibility. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion relate to and are inextricably linked with all aspects of HAVEN’s mission to end violence and change lives and how we aim to do this vital work.  A commitment to issues of DEI positions HAVEN to improve the quality of the experience for our staff, volunteers, clients and community.
