To date, a variety of informal social inclusion activities keep our Alumni engaged. Such engagements include participating in celebrations, Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter dinners, volunteering or attending Safe Haven Foundation events and speaking engagements. Alumni maintain relationships with one another, the staff, and the Founders all relate on a personal and often family level. These bonds are described as natural and organic, rather than mandated by the program or expectations of the job.
A formal Alumni Program is being developed, to ensure the alumni continue to have a sense of belonging, community and a family forevermore. History and research speak to the need and that this component of the Haven’s Way programming plays a very strong role in the success of the alumni we serve.
