In 2014, HAVEN continues to support Latino families through translation services and outreach and support for Spanish-speaking women and children in need. In 2003, HAVEN began the Latino Family Support to address the needs of the Latino population. Because of the Latino population’s growth and HAVEN’s exemplary work with that community, the number of Latino victims seeking HAVEN’s services has increased 300% from that time.
To meet Latinos’ unique needs, HAVEN established the Latino Support Team and Latino Translator Project to help Spanish-speaking victims get the assistance they need to live free from violence. HAVEN has consistently added specialized efforts to address specific and changing needs of victims.
Since 2002, HAVEN has been one of North Carolina’s leaders in developing specialized client care, such as that needed by children disabled persons, and elderly victims.
