Where We Serve
Chicktime Ft Worth is proud serve at SafeHaven of Tarrant County! SafeHaven of Tarrant County (SHTC) was formed in 2006 through a merger of two established domestic violence agencies: The Women’s Shelter (Arlington) and Women’s Haven of Tarrant County (Fort Worth). Women’s Haven was founded in 1976 and The Women’s Shelter followed in 1978. Tarrant County community leaders and volunteers, concerned about the need for safe shelter for battered women and their children, responded in each city by founding these two organizations. To better serve the growing needs of all domestic violence victims, the agencies decided to combine efforts and create linkages to communities throughout the County. Currently, SHTC consists of more than 100 full-time employees and almost 400 volunteers.
Focusing on the urgent needs of women and children fleeing domestic violence situations, SHTC offers solace at two state-of-the-art emergency shelter facilities. Shelter facilities have a 174 bed capacity and provide 24-hour care to families fleeing life-threatening situations. The shelters provide a comprehensive continuum of care through the following services: living quarters, meals, clothing, transportation, counseling, children’s recreational and therapeutic activities, medical and dental care, and case management. These services support adult and child victims of domestic violence by empowering them through every phase of the healing process.
Additional outreach services include: 24-hour bi-lingual crisis line; counseling and support groups for adults and children (English and Spanish); legal services; collaborative programs with police departments and hospitals; transitional housing for families exiting the shelter seeking self-sufficiency; and educational programs for adults, children and youth on prevention and intervention regarding abusive relationships.
