daycare program - affordable before and after school childcare program which serves about 14o children ages 5-13 daily. We are licensed for 161 children. This childcare program provides transportation to and from school, a healthy daily snack, homework help, and leadership development for its participants.

basic services - the club is open each day after school until 6:00 pm to provide drop-in services for area youth as well as affordable childcare. Members get a healthy snack, homework help, and then are offered a variety of programs in our games room and gym to choose from. Although the club spends more than $585 per program participant per year, the fee for the safe haven program is only $20 a year for those who can afford it, a fee that is waived for those who can not.

This is not a handicapped facility. There is no accessibility for wheelchairs. We were prevented from entering the facility to see our granddaughters swim because there is no ramp. Inside the facility there is no handicapped restroom either. How do they serve girls and boys without being accessible to all children.
