Safe Haven Program  

The Office of Faith Based Initiatives (OFBI), under the leadership of Rev. Renaldo Kyles is committed and dedicated to bridging the gaps between Chicago Public Schools and the faith based communities of Chicago. Our mission is to establish effective partnerships with faith based institutions city-wide. We understand the role of faith-based leaders as valuable resources, and know that these partnerships actively engage the community and contribute towards the success of our students and schools. OFBI has several programmatic branches: Safe Haven (more details below), Crisis Training, The Church Adopt-a-School, and Capacity Building Training.

Safe Haven

The Safe Haven program is housed in the Office of Faith Based Initiatives of Chicago Public Schools and provides a “safe haven” for CPS students that is a reliable and no-cost alternative place for 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 and to engage students in workshops that focus on positive conflict resolutions, anger management, anti-bullying and anti-violence.

 

Safe Haven is a partnership between CPS and the Faith Community. There are currently over 120 established partners. The program runs in four cycles: Winter Break (December/January); Afterschool (January-May); Spring Break (April); Summer Break (end of June-August). The program serves over 12,000 students annually.

 

The Office of Faith Based Initiatives is pleased to announce that the Summer Safe Haven program is returning again for 2014. There are 110 Safe Haven Sites that are located throughout the city of Chicago. The free program runs from June 30th until August 8th and is Monday – Friday from 10:00am - 2:00pm. Students will be provided free breakfast and lunch through our partnership with New Life Ministries. Students will be engage in workshops that focus on positive conflict resolutions, anger management, anti-bullying, and anti-violence.

 

Listed below are the selected Safe Haven sites. For general information on the Safe Haven summer program, call the CPS Office of Faith-Based Initiatives at (773) 553-2500.
