Why SAFE Haven of Racine?
The SAFE Haven Shelter is an eight bed multi-cultural community based residential shelter locally controlled by SAFE Haven of Racine, Inc. (formerly Racine Runaway), a private non-profit incorporated in 1971 and licensed by the State as a group home for youth through age 17 in need of emergency shelter due to runaway behaviors and homelessness.
