Safe Haven

Tri-County Safe Haven, operated by the Sault Ste. Marie Housing Commission, is a temporary housing program that offers individuals without shelter a place they can call home. With their short-term housing needs met, Safe Haven staff can then assist those individuals in locating suitable, long-term housing alternatives.

At Safe Haven, we can assist women, men and families by providing temporary shelter up to 90 days and/or offer resources to help individuals find solutions of their own.

We currently utilize three separate homes to accommodate women, children and in-tact families in need of shelter. The homes, with three and four bedrooms, are organized dormitory style, with people from different families sharing common living space. Separately, Safe Haven staff work with private providers to offer housing to men in need of shelter.

If you or someone you know is in need of shelter, please contact Bruce at or by calling 635-5841. Our staff is here to help.
