Safe Haven provides temporary housing and support services for homeless men and women with mental illness. For many clients, Safe Haven is an entry point to the community’s resources and shelter system. Safe Haven does not provide any medical or psychiatric services, but makes space available for licensed clinicians to offer services on-site.   

Safe Haven offers 14 beds for overnight guests and additional day-time services for drop-in visitors. Safe Haven clients are provided with meals, free laundry facilities and showers, phone and mail services, community support groups, assistance from experienced staff members and referrals to community agencies. Safe Haven has a strong record of efficiently providing services to the mentally ill homeless in our community. Other available options cost 7-8 times more than Save Haven. Safe Haven is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Porchlight’s Safe Haven program has successfully served homeless people suffering from serious mental illness since 1995.

Safe Haven is located at 4006 Nakoosa Trail, Madison. Call 241-9447 ext. 10 for more information.
