Safe Haven for the Homeless in Tennessee
Safe Haven Family Shelter was founded in 1984. For 33 years now and still counting, it has been serving families that are experiencing homelessness.
“The core of our mission remains the same and that is keeping those families together, giving them an opportunity to have solutions to the barriers that are facing them.” – Rachael Wilkins
It started with five families and now they concurrently serve about 55 families in the community.
What Sets the Shelter Apart
Safe Haven Family Shelter is the only shelter in Mid Tennesse that accommodates families. It accepts couples with children, single parent families with children, and multi-generational families with children up to 18 years old.
“We have a comprehensive program that really addresses those needs of not only the parents as far as finding housing but the children as well.” – Rachael Wilkins
Families have a variety of reasons why they arrive there. But the Shelter is more than just providing them with homes. It seeks to provide the families with support from which they can benefit long term.
Enriching Programs for the Families
There are a lot of programs prepared for the families. They include workforce development, parenting classes, education and wellness activities, and financial literacy.
“The children’s program goes beyond just enrichment for the children. We’re ensuring that they are not falling behind academically.” – Rachael Wilkins
The Shelter makes sure that both parents and children learn from the programs. The staff also sees to it that the families are able to stay independent even after leaving Safe Haven Family Shelter.
