The Safety Net: Our Ten-Year Aftercare Program
Often the women served by The Haven of Grace have experienced great loss, trauma and inconsistent or unhealthy relationships for most of their lives. We believe the journey towards independence can sometimes be more of a marathon than a sprint. The Haven of Grace offers support to our shelter graduates long after they have left our doors.
We invest time and resources to help secure brighter futures for the young women and children we serve. Our goal is to establish long-term relationships to ensure that these investments hold for the long term. We too can celebrate with the mothers when their journey towards independence becomes a reality.
Our unique Aftercare Program provides community-based support to our Residential Program graduates for up to ten years after they leave the shelter. It involves a range of programs and services including continued case management, new housing start-up items, child care stipends, home visits, parenting education, scholarships, book stipends and invitations to biannual Mom's Day Out educational events.
