Safe Haven Program 

The Office of Faith Based Initiatives of Chicago Public Schools is pleased to announce the Safe Haven Spring Break Program for 2015. Safe Haven is a partnership between CPS and the Faith Community. Safe Haven is a reliable and no cost alternative place for CPS students and parents during critical high violence periods in the city. The mission of Safe Haven is to eradicate bullying and instill practices to combat youth violence. Students will engage in workshops that focus on positive conflict resolutions, anger management, anti-bullying, anti-violence. We are partnering with Junior Achievement to provide financial literacy to teach students how to be good stewards of money. Also, renowned poet J. Ivy will provide on-going conversations on fatherhood and breaking the cycle of pain.

With increased funding from the City of Chicago, there will be 120 Safe Haven Sites citywide.

Last year, 6,000 students participated in the Safe Haven Spring Break Program. With the additional sites this year, we are seeking to increase participation by 2,000 students; which means 8,000 CPS students will have a “safe haven”. This is an increase from 100 sites from last year. The program runs from April 6th until April 10th between the hours of 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Students will receive free breakfast and lunch. For more information, please feel free to contact the Office of Faith Based via telephone 773-553-2500. To register, please contact the Safe Haven site directly.
