Since day one, Haven has been executing against a two-pronged approach to make the world a safer place. The first is through the Haven app with its preventative and proactive measures to ensure users can stay safe and get help fast. The second is through educating the general public about sexual assaults and personal safety.

Haven was created after founder Nelson Lee learned about the prevalence of sexual assaults and harassment at universities across Ontario in August 2020. In March 2021, Haven was accepted by the University of Toronto's incubator, the Hatchery, to join their NEST 2021 Summer Program, which provided connections, mentors, and resources to help Haven succeed in its mission.

In September 2022, Haven partnered with Victim Services Toronto and many universities across Canada, such as the University of Ottawa.

Haven released its app, ‘Haven – Safety Locator & Alert’, on the App and Google Play Store in September 2021. The Haven app can download here:
