Our Impact

Kids In Crisis has been helping kids since 1978.  Here is what a few said the best part of staying at SafeHaven was:


“I learned lots of ways to cope”

Being able to be tested by others and keeping myself together. And being able to bond with my peers”

“Getting time away from my mom to work on our relationship and stabilize my drug use”

“Las mejores cosas que me ha pasado estando aqui es de que e mejorado en la escuela y e tenido major comunicacion con mis padres y e aprendido de mis problemas y aqui me enseñaron como arreglar mis problemas o que es lo que debo de hacer.”

Translation: “I have gotten better in school and I have had better communication with my parents and I have learned from my problems and by being here, they’ve taught me how to fix my problems (skills). (response translated from Spanish)”
