Safe Haven Locations Now Open 

Keeping students safe and engaged during summer break

July 01, 2015

To bridge the gap between one school year and the next, and to promote a safe and healthy summer for students, CPS is once again offering its Safe Haven program, with 120 sites opening on Monday, July 6.

 
Made possible by a partnership with Chicago’s faith-based communities, this is an opportunity for CPS students to engage in programs and activities that enrich their development and keep them safe, active and engaged throughout the summer.
 
“The supervised activities at our 120 churches and community centers help our students build social skills and keeps them off the streets,” said Jesse Ruiz, Interim CEO for Chicago Public Schools, at a Safe Haven launch event. And the academic supports aid in the prevention of summer learning loss and ensure that our students are starting the new school year off on the right foot.”
 
Safe Haven will run from July 6-August 14, Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. All activities and meals (breakfast and lunch will be served daily at all locations) are free of charge for CPS students.
