The six-month course covered several areas such as how to define domestic abuse; how to recognize the signs of abuse; new methods on how to work with victims; and how to support a victim of abuse.

The course was offered by the foundation’s board to upgrade staff knowledge and to improve support services to the clients. 

According to Safe Haven, domestic abuse is reaching epidemic proportions worldwide, including in Sint Maarten.

"This week I have been busy reviewing our planning for the coming months with respect to Parliament Central Committee meetings, and Safe Haven is on our list of social-civic organizations to be invited to provide information to members of parliament with respect to the role of the organization and the state of affairs with respect to domestic violence on the island," President of Parliament Hon. Gracita Arrindell said on Tuesday.

Arrindell added that it is important that organizations such as Safe Haven are at the forefront of offering professional assistance to victims of relational/domestic violence.

"I again take this opportunity to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of all the victims of violence including the family, school friends and neighbours of the late Tiffany Reid (13)," President of Parliament Hon. Gracita Arrindell said on Tuesday.
