A. Fielder Memorial Safe Haven:
The A. Fielder Memorial Safe Haven was designed to provide young people and community residents with a secure neighborhood facility where children can gather daily in a safe environment to engage in educational activities such as homework/reading, life skill presentations and a variety of recreational activities. This facility provides age-appropriate after school and summer programming with a unique focus of maintaining the cultural traditions of the community it serves.

Mission Statement:
To provide an area where children can gather in safety with supervision; where they can engage in educational, athletic and recreational activities. To provide a location for those who wish to mentor and role model children in the area who are often deprived of these social supports.

Group Activities:
Group activities are separated by age/grade (Kindergarten through 5th grade). There are up to 15 children in each age group and they have their own designated staff member.
