Safe Haven has 28 years of experience in the changing field of family homelessness with proactive programs, evidence based practices and trauma informed care. We increasingly play a leadership role in education and advocacy to address this community-wide issue.
Safe Haven is the only shelter-to-housing program of its kind in Middle Tennessee that accepts the entire homeless family. We keep the family together and provide comprehensive services that empower them to achieve lasting self-sufficiency. As our name implies, we have an emergency shelter program, but we also offer a Transitional Housing Program and Rapid Rehousing Program. Safe Haven Family Shelter’s comprehensive approach is one of service, compassion, trauma-informed care and evidenced-bases practices.
“Safe Haven is about preventing, reducing, and intervening in family homelessness with evidence-based and community-based solutions.” – Joyce Lavery, Executive Director
