Batterer Intervention Program – Batterer intervention programs (BIPs) are an essential part of any comprehensive approach to domestic violence. Our program is designed for people that have been arrested for domestic violence as well as individuals seeking self help. Our program consists of educational classes and treatment groups. The intervention elements used are extensive evaluations, individual counseling, and case management with the goals of accountability, justice, and rehabilitation. Our program will result in behavioral changes such as skill building, attitude change, and emotional development.

Parenting Program – Our parenting program provide parents residing in Mecklenburg County North Carolina and surrounding areas, the education, resources, and modeling needed to raise healthy families. We help parents learn how to become their children’s best teachers through gaining an understanding of child development. 

Our parenting program was created as a result of The Blue Haven’s community outreach to clients and community members that provided feedback regarding the lack of positive parenting and hands–on supervision of children in our neighborhoods.

We offer two parenting courses:

Parenting Principles (Intense): A one day intensive parenting course using a systematic training for effective parenting curriculum. This 8-hour course is a rigorous modified version of the same curriculum that is frequently taught over an eight to nine week time period. This course is offered every first and third Saturday of the month from 8:00am to 5:00pm at The Blue Haven, Inc. office and/or various locations within the community. A certificate will be awarded to all participants that successfully complete the entire 8-hour course. Fee of $70 due at registration.
