What We Do

Mission Statement

A Safe Haven offers an unprecedentedly comprehensive approach to addressing homelessness. Our central goal is to help people find a path to sustainable self-sufficiency. To guide our residents on this journey, our multi-faceted team of care professionals delivers individualized case management for each resident to connect them to the appropriate services in a cohesive and coordinated way. One of the first and most important steps is to provide semi-private accommodations based on their specific needs. This first step provides our residents “A Safe Haven” from which to begin their journey back to health and independence.

Our award-winning model of care identifies each resident’s respective physical, mental, social, or economic needs, then develops a service plan according to their specific needs. Everyone who comes to A Safe Haven, from single adults to families with children, youth, military veterans, or other backgrounds, is treated with the highest level of respect and dignity. Our collaborative support program provides education and self-improvement opportunities to help each person manage their social or economic challenges in a coordinated, positive way. A Safe Haven is an environment that fosters success. We help thousands of people each year to restore their lives and move into a more practical, secure future. That is our commitment to the people we serve and to society as a whole.
