Family IconHAVEN Family Resource Center is a non-profit agency located in Lake Havasu, Arizona. HAVEN is a family advocacy center serving all people in crisis situations including victims of crime. We coordinate the response to crimes such as crimes against children, domestic violence, sexual assault, elder abuse and all other personal crimes. HAVEN Family Resource Centers works in alliance with other agencies to reduce the trauma to victims of crime and increase the success of prosecution. Our service area includes Mohave County, La Paz County as well as surrounding tribal reservations. HAVEN Family Resource Center has been providing services to people in crisis since 2001.

"Because of HAVEN, me and my daughter are finally safe."


Our many services include Forensic Interviews, Forensic Exams, Case Management, Counseling, Child Abuse Prevention Education, Positive Parenting and the Food 4 Kidz Program.

We provide a multidisciplinary response to cases that are referred to the center including forensic medical evaluations, forensic interviews, crisis and therapeutic counseling, legal and personal advocacy, educational information and referrals. Victims have the opportunity to have a variety of crisis services in one location, with all agencies working together in the best interest of the families.


HAVEN offers a playroom, private medical exam room and comfortable interview rooms. We also provide showers, personal hygiene items, clothes, and food to children and families when necessary.

Victims and their families are helped through their immediate trauma and provided with the tools to help with coping skills and the healing process.

"I am glad he is in jail, now I can sleep at night again."
