A “Haven Magic” Moment

When Joanna came to the Haven in need of clothes for work, we gave her a clothing voucher to use at the Listen Store. During the same visit, her service coordinator Tara noticed that she was wearing a flip flop that made her out of balance with the orthopedic boot she wore on her right leg.

Stronger Than Ever

Carla’s husband, the father of her two young children, was addicted to drugs. When Carla was with him, she made poor choices and was easily pulled into an unhealthy and dangerous lifestyle. She decided to make the break—and the Haven has been there to support her along the way.

Wheels in Motion

Summer is upon us and the Haven Bike Program is in full gear! Did you know that we make every effort to give each child who stays at the Haven a gently used or nearly new bicycle and a helmet, which they take with them when their families move out and into permanent housing?

Community Pitches In

The VT state police brought Jeanne to the Haven after finding her in her broken-down car on the side of I-91. It was 10 below zero. Snow on the ground. She had a two-wheel trailer attached to her old vehicle, which looked like it was on its last legs. Jeanne wore a sleeveless dress and sneakers.

Safe & Warm

Clare came to the Haven in the bitter cold — homeless — carrying her infant son and everything she owned. She had almost nothing; and no time, space or focus to put her life back together. At the Haven she could breathe again knowing she had a roof over her son’s head, and a place to call HOME.
