WHO WE ARE
Safe Haven 4 Kids Of Michigan is a community development corporation designed to impact our community with the emphasis on caring for abused, abandoned and neglected children. Last year in MI 29,805 children came into foster care as a result of abuse, abandonment and neglect. These children often feel that they have caused the abuse they endure. Their lives have been shattered by forces that they can't control. They are angry, fearful and they don't believe that there is hope for them. Here at SH4KOM we have a plan to help them pick up the broken pieces and mend their hearts. Our plan provides these children with the compassion and commitment they need to learn to trust again. We believe that these children can be transformed by the compassionate actions of people who dare to care.
To touch the heart of every abused, abandoned and neglected child in Southeast Michigan by giving them hope, and empowering them to break the cycle that they have been born into so they can learn to trust again and become productive members in our communities.
Our desire is to provide a safe haven in an environment that will allow the children to create positive, life changing memories. We strive to enable these children to recognize their talents, gifts and abilities; thus allowing them to embrace their self worth while gaining hope for their futures and become positive members of our communities.
Our immediate goal is to continue to provide a one week, life changing camp for children ages 6-12 in the foster care system. We will continue to promote community awareness and support by maintaining a healthy working relationship with the State of Michigan’s Department of Human Services and offering support to foster families. SH4KOM will host multiple community events and fundraisers that function to raise necessary funding and allow us to promote our vision and raise awareness of the needs of our children.
Our long term goals are a work in progress as we are actively pursuing land development which will enable us to host our camp all summer long thus meeting the needs of more children. We are working towards acquiring housing for children that are in different phases of foster care. We desire to provide housing for children that are removed form their abusive situations. These homes will provide a safe home environment while the children are awaiting placement. We also will provide homes for siblings that will allow them to remain together while in foster care.
Lastly, we will provide housing, skills, and mentoring to teens aging out of the foster care system to help them transition into a productive adult life. As our services to the children in our communities broaden our vision to touch the hearts of our children is realized.
