Mission Statement

Wind Haven aims to help survivors of domestic violence heal from abuse and transform their relationships from destructive to productive. Our goal is to enable them to build healthier connections, heal from the effects of abuse and violence, and foster more fulfilling lives.

Description

Wind Haven is a non-sectarian, interfaith 501c3 community outreach initiative that empowers and uplifts individuals affected by domestic abuse and intimate partner violence. Wind Haven was founded in 2020 at the height of COVID-19 by two survivors, Steph & Sarah Grace.

Wind Haven’s founders are abuse & trauma survivors with our own personal stories of life’s struggles, abusive relationships, and trauma.

Steph was one of many survivors trapped in her home with her abuser during the pandemic and was forced to flee her home with no immune system due to medical treatment. She traveled across multiple state lines and landed at her aunt Sarah's house, and was the first "Wind Havener." To this day, Steph never contracted COVID.

We have a great calling in our lives to fulfill a revolutionary mission and vision that leads to our ultimate goal to end abuse and violence, and aid in trauma recovery to help those affected by relationship abuse transition into a sustainable life free from abuse.
