(March 3, 2020 Hammond IN) Fair Haven Rape Crisis Center Beck Alvarez Operations Manager and Becca Emerson, Direct Services Coordinator stop by Studio A to chat about Fair Haven and the support services they offer for survivors of Rape/Sexual Violence. We talk about the support they offer both in initial contact as well as working as an advocate for the survivor while interacting with the prosecuting attorney’s office during the prosecution of the perpetrator. They also discuss the ongoing support and group activities for survivors.
Fair Haven is found in the 27th chapter of the book of Acts. Fair Haven was a harbor in the south of Crete, some 5 miles to the east of which was the town of Lasea and a safe port for ships to take refuge during tumultuous weather.
Fair Haven was the safe port that the ship of Alexandria (in which the Apostle Paul and his companions sailed) and were detained. Contrary to Paul’s advice to remain in the Fair Havens, the master of the ship determined to prosecute the voyage. As a result, the vessel was shipwrecked on the coast of Malta.
Fair Haven desires is to be that safe port in the storm for those who find themselves weary, bruised and broken by the storm of sexual violence. If you are searching for a safe place to heal; dock here and rest awhile.
You will receive encouragement and some needed tools for the future travels. You will receive supplies that will help with today. You will also receive support and direction along the path of recovery. We are here to help.
