In 2006, HAVEN was one of 16 agencies in North Carolina to benefit from Rape Prevention Education Program (RPE).  This program led to HAVEN’s having a specialist staff member who facilitated weekly educational seminars and trainings to create dialogue about sexual violence.

Today, working with other support agencies, HAVEN staff, including trained sexual assault specialist, provide community education aimed at increasing knowledge about sexual assault, exploring personal opinions and attitudes, and fostering caring responses to victims.
