What is Safe Haven?
A Safe Haven is a 24-hour/7-days-a-week community-based recovery program hard-to-reach homeless individuals with severe mental illness and/or substance use problems. These particular veteran’s are living on the street and have been unable or unwilling to participate in traditional treatment and supportive services. Our treatment, consistent with principles for Housing First, and does not require sobriety or full compliance with treatment for admission or continued stay in the program. Many individuals experiencing homelessness cannot be fully compliant with traditional program demands and consequently have repeated failures in those programs, resulting in chronic homelessness.
