Our residential care program provides year-round, full time, 24/7 round-the-clock care. Children are supported in state-of-the-art residences with trained and motivated staff and receive care tailored to suit their specific needs medically, physically and emotionally. Most children go to school during the day, and all children take part in recreation activities. Activities include music therapy, Snoezelen multi-sensory exploration, crafts, readings, outings to local attractions, summer time pool outings and more.

Our activities are designed to help stimulate all senses to improve mobilization, alertness, attention, concentration, communication skills and mental relaxation.

Essential to our model of care is also the belief that children supported by Safehaven should have the same experiences as able-bodied children. Kids should be kids, regardless of abilities. Children are given the opportunity to take part in community and recreational activities so that they can develop to the best of their abilities physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.
