Safe Haven Farms is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located on 60 acres in Madison Township, Butler County, Ohio.  It was founded by a group of local parents in response to the lack of residential and vocational services for adults with developmental disabilities.

Our Mission

Safe Haven Farms is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization offering residential, day and community services for adults with developmental disabilities. Safe Haven believes that every individual served has the right to live, work, learn, and play in a safe and accepting farm environment where all are respected and valued as contributing community members.

All the joy the world contains
Has come from wishing happiness for others.
All the misery the world contains
Has come through wanting pleasure for oneself.
