Why SAFE Haven of Racine?

The SAFE Haven Shelter is an eight bed multi-cultural community based residential shelter locally controlled by SAFE Haven of Racine, Inc. (formerly Racine Runaway), a private non-profit incorporated in 1971 and licensed by the State as a group home for youth through age 17 in need of emergency shelter due to runaway behaviors and homelessness. Counseling is provided to the youth and family members. The project provides residential and non-residential services to runaway and homeless youth including: outreach to youth and the community, direct individual 24 hour intake and assessment; temporary shelter for up to 14 days; food and clothing; individual, group, family and peer counseling sessions for the youth and their family members; positive youth development case management including information and coordinated referral; recreation and leisure activities; aftercare; follow-up, and evaluation. SAFE Haven staff work to prevent youth from running away or becoming homeless through drop-in or home-based services.
