Who we are:

 

  We are not a shelter or a safe haven, we are a temporary home for those who cannot provide their own home, right now. Sue’s Safe Haven Inc is a place of peace, a home for comfort, a place that provides Grace, and a place that passes no judgement. 

What we do:  

   Our transitional housing program we educate and support women and their children through a holistic development plan. A plan that practices Compassion while educating, supporting and ministering to women in transition, promoting self-sufficiency.

 

       SSH, we support women in our community by providing shelter, educational workshops and supportive groups.  Our primary focus is Wellness in women. Wellness is a full integration of physical, mental and spiritual well-being. It is a complex interaction that leads to quality of life. We provide these workshops and supportive groups to address the needs of women before it becomes an issue, an issue that can lead to homelessness. We know the need to help women become self-reliant and confident. Our goal is to work towards a changed mindset to empower women to be the best them they can be.

How do we Do it?

       

"How do I do it and so easy"? I am asked this question by others all the time. My answer is always the same.  "I am these women." There is not a woman who enters into our transitional program, that is any different than me. I always think about when I was in their situation and ask myself what did I need and did not get. It was a peace of mind, education, and compassion, support without judgement.  I needed a peace of mind so I can think and get myself out of my situation.  I need to learn more than what my environment has taught me.  I needed a real person, with a real heartbeat.  

So, I give them that, a real person.  I provide them an environment that promotes peace and educate them with more than what their childhood and/or environment has allowed them to learn.  

A peace of mind- why is it so important? Silence offers opportunities for self-reflection and daydreaming, which activates multiple parts of the brain. It gives us time to turn down the inner noise and increase awareness of what matters most. And it cultivates mindfulness — recognition and appreciation of the present moment. 

Peace of mind. Or, as the dictionary defines it: A mental state of calmness or tranquility, and a freedom from worry and anxiety. Peace of mind is when your buzzing brain comes to a standstill, and your mind and emotions become cool and steady. Ultimately, you remain unperturbed by life's happenings.
