Who we are:
Haven Home Safe is a homelessness organisation specialising in housing solutions. We are a socially-impactful, commercially-operated NFP. This means we have deep empathy for the communities we are embedded in, always focussed on the people who need us most. The people who urgently need to be safe. The family that needs to focus on healing to move forward. The individual who is without a safety net.
Haven Home Safe is transforming with a drive to become a trusted partner of choice because we know that the status quo is the least safe option for the people who need us most. We embrace this change to create the most meaningful impact with new alliances, partnerships and innovative pathways to scale as a regional advocate, a creative thinker delivering on our promise and evolving as we discover new horizons and new challenges as they arise. And the time is now for us to face these challenges with a fresh outlook.
We want to be trusted to partner with individuals, communities, businesses and government with the belief that we will ensure everyone in Victoria has a place to call home. Our vision is to create a world where the housing crisis and homelessness are not realities of our time. Putting our customers at the heart of everything we do, we focus on excellence and bring the people, resources and infrastructure needed to enable us to step into the future we believe is possible. We are accountable, responsible and act with integrity, and we innovate, challenge and learn.
