Self Defense


Hope Haven has partnered with Martin Dawson to offer quarterly Basic Self Defense classes to young girls and women.

Teen Dating Abuse


A two week preventative program for girls 13-18 focused on Teen Dating Abuse. Our Goal is to instill in these girls a great sense of worth and self confidence to be able to identify red flags in their relationships and learn to walk away before it is too late.

Each girl was partnered with a strong, successful woman of the community who will serve as their mentor.

While learning about teen dating abuse and how to seek help, the girls were also educated in positive coping techniques such as yoga, meditation, interpretive drawing and self-defense to name a few.
