Bay Haven Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Shelter
A partnership between the Native Village of Hooper Bay and RurAL CAP, the Bay Haven Shelter provides the communities of Hooper Bay, Chevak, and Scammon Bay with a trauma-informed shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault (DV/SA). Though located in Hooper Bay, the shelter benefits surrounding regional communities by reducing the distance and expense required to travel and receive timely victim services.
Operating out of a facility provided by the Sea Lion Corporation, the shelter houses up to 12 women and their children, with coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Services include victim advocacy, legal assistance, referral services, community education, and domestic violence/sexual assault prevention activities.
The Bay Haven Shelter is made possible by the U.S. Department of Justice, The Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous People, and many other community partners and donors.
Please call if you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence or sexual assault in the Hooper Bay region. Bay Haven staff are here for you.
