Hazael Haven, Inc. is a non-profit (tax-exempt) organization recognized by the IRS under section 501(c)(3). When contemplating a name for this organization, I recalled that the term Hazael means “God sees” in Hebrew ( חֲזָאֵל). It felt to me to be particularly suited for our purpose. Many times when we experience hardship, we ask ourselves where God was when I suffered? Psalm 34:18 says, "The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit." He is always near to you in your time of need, and it is our hope to serve in his name.
Our Mission: To provide a safe refuge to women and children who are survivors of domestic violence/intimate partner violence: to provide biblical counseling, and to support the church community to deal with the complexities of this issue.
Our Vision: To establish a network of safe refuge homes across the Delaware Valley that will provide biblical counseling to female victims of intimate partner violence and prevention education to churches in the area. Hazael Haven is raising funds to launch our pilot project, Safe Refuge. Safe Refuge will serve women and children in Philadelphia experiencing intimate partner violence.
