A Safe Haven Foundation Overview

A Safe Haven Foundation (ASHF) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit social enterprise that helps people aspire, transform, and sustain fulfilling lives as they transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency with pride and purpose. Our organization employs a holistic, scalable model that provides the resources and support necessary for individuals to overcome the root causes of homelessness.

Project Overview

The VISTA will serve as part of an intra-agency team studying and refining A Safe Haven Foundation’s model. The project is intended to identify and systematize best practices and update agency policies and procedures to reflect the most recent evidence-based recommendations for substance use social service care provision. This will allow ASHF to effectively scale its services and better serve homeless individuals in Chicago — particularly those at high-risk for opioid addiction — ultimately helping them transition out of poverty by creating greater access to treatment and other services.


AmeriCorps Length of Contract

AmeriCorps VISTA members serve full time (40 hours per week) for one-year terms.
