Freedom from Domestic Abuse in Philadelphia
Last year there were over 7000 women and children turned away from emergency shelter in our city of Philadelphia. Hazael Haven, Inc. aims to alleviate this problem by providing women and children experiencing domestic violence with housing, individual/family biblical counseling, support groups, safety planning, legal aid, education, employment assistance, and referrals to resources in the community.
Hazael means "God sees" in Hebrew ( חֲזָאֵל). Many times when we experience hardship, we ask where was God when I suffered? Here at Hazael Haven we want to encourage others that God saw you there and provided a save place for you.
