The Haven is a residential home to care for children and young people who are unable to be cared for by their own families. We provide a comprehensive residential care programme, specially designed and directed towards preparing their reintegration into the community and reunion with their families.
At The Haven, social workers and care staff work towards building a close relationship with the children and young people, seeking to be a friend, teacher and counsellor to help them overcome their past hurts and to build up their resilience to face the future with a positive attitude.
We also provide a programme which specialises in an alternative care approach for teenagers who require further assistance while pursuing post-secondary education, known as Transitions@Haven. This hostel living arrangement helps them learn necessary life skills and encourage independent living.
Programmes & Services
Individualised and Special Care
An individualised care plan is developed to address each child’s educational, social, spiritual and family needs. This is reviewed regularly so that the changing needs of each child are met.
Children who come from difficult family backgrounds will need special care and attention to help them heal and come to terms with their past.
Academic support is provided to help our children realize their full potential.
Sports and Outdoor Activities
Sports and outdoor activities encourage healthy interaction to build up self-confidence and enhance team building. We offer many opportunities for our young residents to pursue their sporting passion and participate in recreational activities.
Music, Drama and Art
The creative arts are known to have a therapeutic and healing effect. The Haven encourages our young residents to explore their gifts and enjoy the pursuit of music, drama and art.
Life Skills Training
Equipping our young people with life skills is essential in developing responsibility, accountability and independence. We provide a variety of interesting and exciting activities to motivate them to learn and be active participants.
An important aspect of total care is to assist the children where possible to maintain contact with their parents or extended family. Social workers provide case management and counselling, and arrange family contact time, meetings and home visits to address family issues.
