Our Mission:

The Haven is a nonprofit organization which provides safe and hospitable shelter, supportive services, and advocacy in order to assist homeless or at risk individuals and families to achieve a higher level of self sufficiency in collaboration with religious and community groups.

Program Aspects:

  1. Emergency Shelter: Providing safe shelter to those in need.
  2. Community Kitchen: Serving three meals a day to anyone that is in need of food.
  3. Case Management: We meet with each individual staying at our location minimally once a week to provide counseling, life coaching, and advocacy.
  4. Day Program: Partnering with other community agencies, classes and volunteer opportunities are provided for those staying at the shelter to develop their workforce skills and increase their self-sufficiency.
