Haven began serving survivors in 1979. Over the last four decades, Haven has worked to both provide safe intervention for survivors of domestic violence, as well as to prevent future violence from occurring. We believe increased awareness through community education can make us all allies in ending domestic violence.
Haven is the only nonprofit serving survivors of domestic and sexual violence, sex trafficking, and stalking in Gallatin County. Our approach makes us unique — everything we do is deeply and genuinely rooted in empowerment. We connect survivors to all the resources and help they need while trusting they should be the ones to decide what’s best for their own journey.
Haven’s Weekend Advocates will provide support to survivors of domestic and sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and stalking by providing emotional support, crisis intervention, information and referrals, in person, over the support line and via chat and texting. The ideal candidate will have strong interpersonal skills, utilize active listening skills, ability to work independently, and make ethical decisions. They will also be committed to Haven’s mission and be willing to actively help maintain and build a positive, supportive culture at the organization.
