PRIDE Haven’s History
Founded in 1986 as SAVE Home, the building now known as PRIDE Haven was the birthplace of SAVE, Inc. The founding of SAVE Home at 3109 Campbell came at a time when the AIDS epidemic was rising in Kansas City. Many in the community recognized the need for a safe haven for those dying from AIDS. The home soon became the first AIDS hospice in Missouri, and as the complexion of the disease changed, the facility later became a 24/7 group home for eight people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS who had a higher level of need than independent, permanent supportive housing could provide. For 32 years, SAVE home served a great need in our community but unfortunately in June 2018, this model of care was no longer financially feasible, and we had to close the doors.
As staff and board members began thinking about how to utilize SAVE Home best, they looked at various demographics to see who could be best served by a new purpose for SAVE Home. After some consideration, it was obvious to everyone that the most under-served homeless community in Kansas City was transition-aged youth, including the LGBTQIA+ community. In late 2019, SAVE Home finally completed its transformation into PRIDE Haven and has now opened its doors once again, expanding on the original intentions of SAVE Home’s brave founders. Today, PRIDE Haven proudly serves all young adults, ages 18-24, who are in need of our help in a safe, welcoming, and LGBTQ+ friendly environment.
