TRIVIA CONTEST!!! USE Your Brain to Raise Money for SAFE Haven of Racine

Where: Dewey’s Restaurant and Sports Bar, 600 Main St. When: 6:00-9:00pm on June 23rd, 2015

Why: Noticing an increase in trafficked homeless and runaway youth, we endeavor to raise funds to provide additional proactive outreach, comprehensive recuperative services, and prevention programs.

  • According to a 2011 FBI report on human trafficking, approximately 293,000 US children are at risk for being exploited and trafficked for sex.
  • The average human trafficking victim is 13 years old.
  • 1 out of 3 runaway teens will be solicited for sex trafficking within 48 hours of leaving home.



Pinwheel Cookout

Pinwheels for Prevention: SAFE Haven’s Event for Child Abuse Prevention Awareness

To raise awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, SAFE Haven of Racine, Inc. is hosting a cookout and pinwheel garden planting on April 18th, 2015 from noon-3pm. The pinwheel symbolizes the care-free childhood that every kid deserves, and the pinwheel garden planted in our front yard will serve as a gentle reminder to the community that, while great strides are being made to solve the issues of child abuse and neglect, there is still work to be done.

According to Childhelp, an organization devoted to the prevention and treatment of child abuse since 1959, a report of child abuse is made every 10 seconds. Every year more than 3 million reports are made, which involve over 6 million children. Child abuse leads to a decrease in life expectancy (an average decrease of 20 years), an increase in the likelihood of mental health issues and alcohol and drug addiction, and an increased risk of intimate partner violence as an adult. That is if a victim makes it to adulthood. In 2012, it was reported that 1,640 children died as the result of abuse or neglect, roughly 4 or 5 a day. That is too many.

So what can we do? The American Humane Association recommends that community members become actively involved in the lives of children in their neighborhoods. Start by joining SAFE Haven, a youth shelter that has been actively involved in the lives of Racine’s most at-risk children for almost 44 years, in continuing the conversation surrounding child abuse and neglect.

 The pinwheel garden planting will begin at 12pm with a cookout to follow until 3pm. There will be plentiful food and family-friendly games and activities with prizes. SAFE Haven is located at 1030 Washington Ave, with parking on Pearl Street.

 SAFE Haven remains true to its mission to improve the quality of life for youth and families by providing safe living environments, crisis support, and community intervention. Please be our partner in keeping young people safe and preparing them for the future.


1649 screening

Please join us for a screening of the documentary Project 16:49 at Gateway Technical College’s Racine Building, Nov. 19th at 6pm!

A partnership between the Continuum of Care for the City and County of Racine, SAFE Haven of Racine, Inc., Women’s Resource Center, Racine Unified Schools and Professional Services Group will host a screening of the documentary Project 16:49 during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week to raise awareness for Youth Homelessness in the state of Wisconsin. Community members and residents are invited to the free screening at Gateway Technical College’s Racine Building at 6pm on November 19th, 2014.

Project 16:49, referring to the 16 hours and 49 minutes between the end of one school day and the beginning of the next, tells the story of several homeless Wisconsin teens. Produced and filmed in Beloit, the documentary was shown at the Beloit International Film Festival and later won the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth media award for 2010. The Community Partnership hopes to educate and raise awareness in Racine County of the critical issue of Youth Homelessness. In Racine Unified Schools, over 900 students were identified as homeless last school year. Many of our own students also face these 16 long hours and 49 minutes.

Refreshments will be provided at 6:00pm, followed by an introduction and a youth speaker at 6:45pm. The screening will start at 7:00pm. There is a suggested donation of 1-2 canned food items to be given to the Racine County Food Bank.
