Coming to work and getting to spend each day with these amazingly talented, resilient, and strong youth has made staying here the last 10 years a breeze. I couldn’t ask for a more supportive environment and feel truly grateful to be doing this work.”

“I’m so grateful to be a part of the Lutherwood community; working at Safe Haven has allowed me to see why more conversations are needed around youth mental health and the systematic barriers they face. This experience prompted me to further my education by pursuing my master’s degree in social work with a focus on mental health. I believe that the core values that I use to show up for my clients and their families at Safe Haven are cultural humility and advocacy, as well as offering support through a strengths-based approach and a trauma informed lens. Over a short period of time, I’ve had many great learning opportunities which I will forever be grateful for.”
