SIA Safe Haven Home


Each year Subaru of Indiana Automotive selects a beneficiary or project based on community need that will lend a hand to children and families in Tippecanoe County. In 2012 they selected a project in cooperation with Faith Church and the American Red Cross, the SIA Safe Haven Home – an emergency shelter for families who are displaced due to fire, natural disasters or domestic violence.

In the wake of the recent tornado disaster in southern Indiana, the need for a facility like the SIA Safe Haven Home has become even more evident.  After families, especially those with children, experience the devastation of losing or having to flee their home, it can be very traumatic and confusing for the families.  The SIA Safe Haven Home will provide a safe and comfortable temporary home for families in need.

The Safe Haven Home is located on the Faith campus next to the Vision of Hope Residential Treatment Center. VOH  will act as hosts for the guest families living at the Save Haven Home.

The formal community dedication program for Safe Haven will be held on Wednesday, February 20 at 3 pm and will begin at the Vision of Hope Residential Treatment Center.

Bravo to Barry (Redding of M&B Investment) and his crew for their good work! Here's a time-lapse video that shows what they were able to accomplish in just one day...and the video doesn't do credit to how fast they were moving. :-)
