Helping our fellow women

For the past 18 years, Serene Harbor has offered safe refuge and provided life changing services to more than 20,000 women and children who were victims of domestic violence in our community.

Their vison is a community that is educated about and welcoming to victims of domestic violence and their needs. Our mission is to be a leading advocate for reducing the incidence of domestic violence in Brevard County through intervention, prevention, social change, information, enlightenment, education and engagement of our community. 


Overcoming the effects of domestic violence is a monumental task for survivors and their children. The role of the domestic violence shelter in assisting survivors to break away from this abuse is significant. Serene Harbor provides a safe and protective environment to support the survivors as they struggle to build a life for themselves and their children free from fear and violence.

I worked with this organization for our service-learning this semester and really gained a lot of knowledge and hope for these women.  Anyone can do a little part to help by volunteering to work, starting a supply drive, or working a hotline.  A little goes a long way for these women
