Board of Directors

Throughout the years, SAFE Haven has provided quality services to vulnerable youth and families. Trained staff members are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week providing a wide range of services at no cost.

We wish we could report that we have solved the problems of child abuse, neglect and homelessness, but sadly, we have not. Racine’s families still need our help and we need yours!

SAFE Haven remains true to its mission to improve the quality of life for youth and families by providing safe living environments, crisis support, and community intervention. With your help we can continue to positively impact youth and families. SAFE Haven is proud to report that 92% of the funding we receive goes directly to serving youth and families. Be assured that your donation will be used to make a difference!

Difficult economic times create great challenges for already stressed families and increase the need for the supportive services SAFE Haven provides. This year more than ever, SAFE Haven depends on your support to guarantee that services are offered each and every hour of each and every day.

Please be our partner in keeping young people safe and preparing them for the future. With your help, we can offer them hope.
