Welcome to our Community Report. This year’s theme centres on the need to help people in a world that is constantly evolving. 

While we continue to base our service on proven practices that we know get results, we also look for new approaches that will make us more effective. Innovating, understanding client needs and learning together with others are all keys to providing the best possible service.
We know we are successful when our clients tell us that we are making a difference. We reflect their stories back to you because these successes are a result of you – our donors, volunteers, funders and community partners. Your support helps us help them, and succeed in our vision of Communities where all children, youth, adults and families enjoy mental wellness, financial stability and a safe place to live.

Thank you for all you have done and I hope you enjoy our 2018 Community Report: Helping In A Changing World.

Yours very truly,

John Colangeli

"I was 17, confused and thought I was a lost cause. I became homeless. I heard about Safe Haven's youth shelter, but was skeptical and scared. [But] the staff are extremely friendly and so supportive...I wasn't judged. They showed me how to cook, do a budget, and even helped me with my homework."
