Safe Havens are a form of supportive housing that serves hard-to-reach homeless people with severe mental illness. Prior to 2008, Safe Havens were classified as either transitional housing Safe Havens (or TH-SH) or permanent housing Safe Havens (or PH-SH). Beginning in 2008, HUD required Safe Havens to classify themselves as transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, or safe havens. Any Safe Haven that has reclassified itself as a transitional housing or permanent supportive housing project should be included in the AHAR. The remaining Safe Havens are excluded from the AHAR.
