Who We Are
SafeHaven is a non-profit agency for adults 18 and over in need
of mental health support, including but not limited to: depression,
anxiety disorders, bipolar, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive, personality disorders, etc.
SafeHaven offers mental health consumers a consumer-operated center where they may participate in educational, social, and vocational support classes, and groups in a safe environment toward mental health recovery.
SafeHaven Thanksgiving Restaurant
Since SafeHaven began in 1996, it has offered a Thanksgiving meal for its adults recovering from depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar, and many other forms of mental illness. For the fourth year in a row (in 2016) SafeHaven will once again feature the ‘SafeHaven Thanksgiving Restaurant. This event offers a free, delicious Thanksgiving meal where mental health consumers will be greeted, seated, waited on, and served in our SafeHaven simulated restaurant.
The meal and restaurant theme will be held at our Miami County site on 633 N. Wayne Street in Piqua for any adult in need of mental health support in Darke, Miami, and Shelby Counties. The building and tables will be nicely decorated and light music will fill the rooms. We have many appreciated volunteers from the community that help SafeHaven make this happen for many living in poverty and dealing with debilitating symptoms of mental illness.
SafeHaven decorates the whole building giving a restaurant theme and experience for our members who are less fortunate. Instead of doing soup kitchen setting, we step it up so, our members who have never had the chance to ever eat at a restaurant it gives them that atmosphere or experience: with greeters, hostesses, waiters/waitresses, busers, and etc., we also use table linens, center pieces, and etc. as well.
Dozen plus volunteers from the community help make this possible for our members. With out the community and volunteers from the community SafeHavens Thanksgiving Restaurant would not be possible.
Thank you to our Thanksgiving Restaurant volunteers in 2015: Chief Bruce Jamison, Claire Timmer, Erin Cooper, Dwight Richard, Kim Ojeda, Jim Mieding, Ashley Rice, Donald Kaiser, Claire Hemmelgarn, Doug Pavelka, Kayla Condon, Chelsea Weatherhead, Brittney Tvttle, Ally Triplett, Jayden Hahn, and Susie Evans.
“Everything went great. It is so nice to have a place we are cared about this much. All of the food was great and the waitressing was awesome. This is the only Thanksgiving I usually get.”
