Safehaven – The Savehaven Project for Community Living
VP, Client Care and Operations
Everyone deserves a space where they can thrive. An environment that is safe, loving and allows them to develop to the best of their abilities. The Safehaven Project for Community Living (Safehaven) goes the extra mile to deliver respite and residential care that not only exceeds medical standards, but is non-institutional and fun. With extensive recreational programming, highly trained staff and modern home-like facilities, we deliver everything an individual needs to live a bright and rewarding life. With five locations across the GTA, Safehaven serves almost 200 families every year. Residential and respite care programs provide round-the-clock care, 365 days a year, for a wide-range of individuals including those living with cerebral palsy, genetic and seizure disorders, vision loss, and hearing impairment.
Safehaven is constantly striving to better serve the families that need their help most. That’s why they are currently exploring opportunities to expand service offerings to adult aged individuals, developing programs and services to care for more medically complex individuals, and implementing innovative therapy and recreational programs for our existing and future clients. Safehaven is always working with community partners to ensure past, present and future clients have all the supports they need to live happy and fulfilling lives.
