Tri-Valley Haven for Women was incorporated as a non-profit corporation on June 21, 1977. Previously, our founders set up a domestic violence crisis line in a supporter’s garage and some were sheltering survivors in their own homes. By the early 1980s, TVH had a 30-bed domestic violence shelter and a rape crisis center to assist survivors of sexual assault. As the need for services grew, Tri-Valley Haven’s Board of Directors board and the City of Livermore worked together to build our community building in 1996 so the agency could provide counseling and advocacy to more individuals and families fleeing abuse. In 2002, Tri-Valley Haven began providing homeless services. We opened our food pantry and homeless shelter. Our thrift store launched in 2013 to help fund our programs and provide clothing to Tri-Valley Haven clients in need. The Haven has been committed to providing prevention education to middle and high schools students on topics such as healthy relationships, affirmative consent, anti-dating violence and self-defense for over 20 years.
TVH has come a long way from where we started over 40 years ago, but we couldn’t have done it without each of you. Thank you to our founders, to our volunteers, to our staff, to our supporters!
