A Safe Haven: 5k Run To End Homelessness

A Safe Haven: 5k Run To End Homelessness

Harris & Harris is proud to support A Safe Haven, a local Chicago foundation. We are happy to announce our sponsorship of the 6th annual 5K Run To End Homelessness this summer, on July 10th, 2016 taking place in Chicago’s Douglas Park. “Each year, A Safe Haven continues to advance its mission to provide a community-based, integrated continuum of care. This continuum of care includes supportive housing, case management, treatment, access to healthcare, job training, job placement and affordable housing to those individuals who are recovering from alcohol/substance abuse, domestic violence, loss of employment, homelessness and mental illness. Our comprehensive continuum of services enables the vast majority of our program participants to achieve sustainable self-sufficiency,” said Neli Vazquez Rowland, Co-Founder and President.

The social and economic impact of A Safe Haven has been astounding to the City of Chicago. From July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015, over 4,440 participants utilized the foundation’s programs. In that same year, 1,251 adults and heads of households secured permanent housing. Over 983 children were served, and 349 youth between 18-24 were served in overnight shelters. The total treatment hours are at 23,651 with over 501,000 meals prepared!

After Harris & Harris was introduced to the foundation, we knew it was one we wanted to get involved with. We hope to sponsor and support various A Safe Haven endeavors in the future, while making a difference in our hometown, Chicago.
