SafeHaven reopens in Shelby County


SIDNEY — Since March 18, SafeHaven had not been able to open for attendance due to COVID-19 regulations in Ohio, but the group has had the opportunity to deliver meals and offer virtual support groups and technology wellness check-ins for many of its members.

The SafeHaven locations in Darke, Miami, and Shelby counties have their buildings designed to meet and exceed the health safety requirements, including social distancing seating arrangements, one-way hallways/pathways, verbal health screenings before entry, increased cleaning procedures, added hand sanitation stations, provided masks for employees and members, and more. During this phase of social distanced-opening, the transportation will not be available for riders. SafeHaven will be open for attendance with its structured day of support groups, educational classes, meals, social activities, and more three days per week at each site, and will continue cooking/packaging/delivering meals and providing virtual support four (four) days per week at each site.

Miami County’s site reopened with special regulations on Wednesday, June 10, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will continue each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until further restrictions are eased. Meal deliveries and virtual support will continue to be available each Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Call 937-615-0126 or email safehavendouglas@woh.rr.com for more information.
