"The mission of HAVIN Inc. is to provide supportive services and advocacy for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and their significant others; to increase public awareness, and effect critical changes in public policy in response to sexual and domestic violence."
HAVIN Inc. was founded in 1979 by a grass roots organization of women. In its earliest state this group of women worked toward their goal of providing services to battered women and survivors of sexual assault by establishing a volunteer-staffed hotline for survivors of abuse.
