SAFE HAVEN LIGHT
We Care Community Services has been serving Rhea County for over 30 years. By helping over 10,000 people annually, we continue to strive, grow, and meet the needs in our local community. For the past several years, we have assisted homeless families with children through our SAFE HAVEN LIGHT HOME in Spring City,TN. In 2015 we helped 71 individuals who stayed a total of 2,390 nights in our shelters.
SAFE HAVEN LIGHT was repurposed at the beginning of 2015 to serve families with children who are in need of temporary transitional housing. Families who stay with us must have school age children, an income or promise of one, a plan that is tangible and attainable to ensure they are in permanent stable independent housing within six weeks. Through this model we have had a 98% success rate in our home. This means 98% of our families left our shelter to be in stable independent housing.
While we are pleased to report this kind of success, the fact is, that operating SAFE HAVEN LIGHT adds a significant financial burden to We Care's budget. Even so, our list of future projects and needs is long. These projects include building affordable housing for low-income seniors, additional transitional housing for the homeless, and continuing to deliver the services provided through SAFE HAVEN LIGHT.
We can't do it all alone. We are neighbors helping neighbors, and we depend on your partnership and support to continue moving forward.
All money donated stays in Rhea County to support the programs of We Care Community Services.
