Stand Up Against Domestic Violence

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and Haven House Domestic Violence Shelter, Inc. would like to invite you to Stand with us Against Domestic Violence.  For when we work together as a community, we can achieve amazing things.


We have some great activities planned, and would like to invite you to join us to be a part of them.


On Saturday, October 14th Haven House Domestic Violence Shelter, Inc. will be hosting the Mayor’s BBQ at Haynes Park in Rio Rancho. We will have good food, family friendly fun, provide information on resources in the community, and fundraise for the only Domestic Violence Shelter in Sandoval County. Please let us know if you are interested in sponsoring this event, or setting up a table as a part of the community health fair. Information is attached for your review and response.


And, we welcome you to join us at the other Sandoval County domestic violence awareness planned events:
