A Safe Haven Veterans Housing
Since 1994, A Safe Haven has offered three types of Veteran housing based on individual need, assessment and eligibility, including transitional housing, per diem housing and permanent affordable housing. Veterans have access to the appropriate level of housing which may include full wrap-around services, supportive housing and employment services, to independent permanent affordable housing. Based on the assessment and eligibility, a Veteran can start at the transitional housing stage and work their way progressively through our housing programs. They can also start at the per diem program level or go directly to independent permanent affordable housing.
A Safe Haven has many beautiful locations within and throughout the greater Chicagoland area; all housing is in neighborhood settings. Regardless of the path taken, the end goal is to achieve successful reintegration into the community, sustainable self-sufficiency, and permanent independent affordable housing, with pride and purpose restored.
What We Do
A Safe Haven’s mission is to restore hope and opportunity to individuals in crisis by providing treatment, housing, support services, and economic empowerment.
All men/women at A Safe Haven must be 18 years or older, honorably discharged from military service, homeless, and/or in financial crisis. All housing programs listed here are funded or partially funded by the US Department of Veterans Affairs and/or the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. All other services and programs may be funded by various public/private partnerships, including the City of Chicago, the State of Illinois, and Federal Agencies and/or charitable corporate or family foundations and private donors.
