|General Information :
Safehaven provides out-of-home respite which aims to offer an enriching experience for children with complex needs. Safehaven's respite program has a clear focus on community participation, inclusion and recreational programming, while enabling the child's family/guardian to take a break from their constant caring role. Safehaven works in partnership with families to deliver a quality respite program that focuses on the child's needs and preferences.
Safehaven collaborates with families and local schools to advocate for their child to attend school during their respite stay. Safehaven has built a relationship with community organizations to ensure continuity of care for every child visiting Safehaven. Safehaven also encourages family participation and hosts regular respite parties for families to connect with one another.
Respite Care is provided 24/7 within our five locations in Toronto, North York, Etobicoke, Woodbridge and Aurora. Respite families typically choose to utilize the home nearest to them, within their region.
At Safehaven, ability to pay is NEVER a barrier to service.
