Why the Magnolia?

Unlike many flowers, magnolias are resilient, needing to adapt to changing climates over the centuries to survive. This perseverance of the magnolia represents endurance, self-respect, and strength. Much like the magnolia, domestic violence survivors have endured unpredictable, controlling, and manipulative forces within their own environments. Safe Haven strives to empower survivors on their healing journeys as they draw from their own strength and self-respect to realize a life of safety while overcoming the effects of trauma.
