The Path to Healing
Haven, a member of Arizona's Children Association family of agencies, is a crisis nursery for young children in Yavapai County whose
families are facing extreme difficulties. Many times life circumstances can overwhelm
parents and place children at risk.
Child Haven's goal is
to provide a place for families to turn to ensuring children are safe and families receive the support they need. It provides free,
overnight shelter care. All
of the children stay in the homes of volunteer licensed or certified Child Haven host families,
and almost all of them are referred by their own families.
It is the only program of its kind in Arizona.
Child Haven host families
care for children ages birth to six, and their older siblings up
to age ten. The typical stay is one to three days, with arrangements
made for extended stays on a case by case basis. Child Haven helps families for any number of reasons
such as stress, illness, homelessness, respite or crisis.
Child Haven also offers
a variety of other services to support families in need including
information and referral; free clothing room, diapers and formula;
and intensive case management services for families in crisis.
