When they are not busy managing programs and services that take place on our campus in White River Junction, leaders at the Haven are active in policy work and advocacy at the state and national level, striving to improve the lives of those in poverty.
“Attending the Haven’s ‘Getting Ahead’ class gave me a place I needed to be—a focus—when I really needed one. At first, I was just showing up. Then I began to get involved and do the work.”
A new pilot program begins tonight at the Haven! In partnership with Dartmouth-Hitchcock, the Haven is hosting a free six-week workshop that will teach participants about self-management of chronic physical and mental health conditions like heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, depression, asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema.
“Our ability to fulfill provide nutrition and not just calories to people with food insecurity in the Upper Valley depends deeply on our food resource partners. We celebrate Willing Hands as a vital partner in this mission”, says Executive Director Sara Kobylenski. “Willing Hands is a crucial part of the food system in the Upper Valley and a valued community partner of the Haven.”
