About Safe Haven

Safe Haven is a permanent supportive housing program for men who are disabled and chronically homeless. It follows the Housing First philosophy, which prioritizes permanent housing as the first step in addressing chronic homelessness, gaining self-sufficiency, working towards goals, and improving quality of life.  

Safe Haven provides a supportive and nurturing environment where men experiencing homelessness can work on addressing their most pressing issues, leading to increased self-sufficiency and independence. Residents work with a case manager and resident manager and receive support, assistance, and resources to help them reach their unique goals and remain stably housed. 

Safe Haven has two single-family homes and serves up to ten individuals.

Safe Haven History

The Safe Haven Program began in 2006 and was the first of its kind in Anne Arundel County. The program began with one house, Safe Haven I, located in Brooklyn Park. In 2009, the program added a second house, Safe Haven II, located in Severna Park.
