Our housing first model, coupled with wrap-around services is designed to give families the necessary tools to achieve lasting self-sufficiency, stable employment and secured housing. All of our housing programs begin in shelter. Our goal is to house families as quickly as possible. We partner with landlords in the community to secure housing for families.
Shelter to Housing:
Following a housing first model, we begin a housing plan when families enter the shelter.
The Safe Haven Family Shelter develops community relationships with landlords willing to provide affordable housing for our families so that when they leave our programs they will have a permanent opportunity to be housed.
While success looks different for every family, we strive to have our clients secure employment and gain housing. Through education, training, and case management, families are prepared to return to a home of their own with long-term economic and social success. We strive to meet an 85% success rate which is defined by families moving from shelter to permanent housing.
Safe Haven Family Shelter is now only taking referrals through Nashville’s Coordinated Entry at Metro Social Services. If you are a family in need of housing assistance, please call 862-6444 to be connected with services.
