Safe Haven provides an opportunity for additional learning time, with students engaging in activities ranging from reading and math to educational games, performing arts programs, and the building of peer and mentor relationships that will help them stay on track once school resumes. 

Safe Haven is a partnership between CPS and the Faith Community. The program runs in 3 cycles: Afterschool (November - May); Spring Break (March/April); Summer Break (July-August). 

Summer Break Safe Haven Locations
All CPS students are welcome at Safe Haven sites throughout Summer Break, Monday – Friday (July 8- August 16) between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and meals will be provided at all locations. Here’s a list of Summer Break 2019 Safe Haven Locations in your community.
