The SAFE HAVEN HALFWAY HOME (SHHH) is a temporary shelter for teenage girls who are homeless due to abuse and rejection from family members.

September 2017, Gender Links Mauritius opened the first halfway home in Mauritius called Safe Haven. A Halfway Home is a place that serves as a residence for people in need; providing them with the necessary skills to re-integrate into society and to better support and care for themselves.

Safe Haven Halfway Home (SHHH) welcomes young women as from the age of 18 who have had traumatising past experiences, and yet are determined to render their present and future beautiful. These women come from different socio-economic backgrounds and have known various types of violence including physical, sexual, emotional and economic. Safe Haven is an ongoing service-based non-for-profit activity for homeless, abused young girls, women victims of domestic violence, teenage mothers and their children.
