Children's Haven provides emergency care for children when a family crisis occurs. We operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and we accept children up to 12 years of age. We have facilities to support up to 17 children at one time. Our support and consultation staff are trained and experienced and provide services for both parents and children.
Children's Haven is funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada, C.A.P.C., the Ministry of Social Services, SIGA - Northern Lights Casino, and community fundraising.
Plans for the Children's Haven began in 1987/88 with the formation of the "Child Crisis Committee" which worked until the opening of the center on September 14th, 1990. After the Haven was opened, a dedicated team of individuals remained involved to ensure the project would continue and be successful.
