Safe Haven is the only shelter-to-housing program of its kind in Middle Tennessee that accepts the entire homeless family. Safe Haven keeps the family together and provides comprehensive services through multiple avenues like employment services, financial and parenting classes and health/fitness programs that empower families to achieve lasting self-sufficiency. Our dollars will go to help stock the shelves of the Safe Haven Bucks Program. This program was designed to help families purchase items they need (such as toasters, dishware and extra blankets) for their future residence that the shelter does not typically provide when they transition. Families can earn "bucks" by doing extra choirs, going above and beyond in their programs or doing good deeds around the shelter. They can then redeem items from the store using thier "bucks" and use these items to improve their quality of life.
