HAVEN is dedicated to addressing public health through violence prevention and improving the well-being of children and families. Preventing abuse and providing support for those impacted by domestic and sexual violence can lead to healthier and more secure children and adults.

Volunteers are "on-call" from their homes on nights and weekends, and are required to cover at least four hotline/ hospital accompaniment shifts per month for a minimum of one year. Volunteers may also do daytime advocacy in one of our 3 office locations (Portsmouth, Rochester and Salem NH). This could include answering the hotline, meeting with clients one to one, and providing accompaniment to court, to Child Advocacy Center interviews, or to hospitals.
