Care Haven is a 5-bed, non-leveled community respite facility located in Marion, serving children and adolescents ages 6-17 who are diagnosed with either a mental health issue or who are dual diagnosed (MH/DD). Community respite provides periodic relief for primary care givers on a temporary basis. Care Haven also provides services to children awaiting permanent placement in either foster care or a higher level of care. Care Haven is currently available to Vaya consumers.

Children can stay for up to 24 calendar days without prior authorization. Care Haven provides 24 hour supervision through trained paraprofessionals. Care Haven is not a crisis facility and does not provide crisis intervention services. If a child is unable to maintain safety, Care Haven reserves the right to contact guardians and give a 24-hour notification of discharge. 

To refer a child to Care Haven, please complete the initial referral form and upload a current CCA (Comprehensive Clinical Assessment).
