The Haven and its generous community supporters have completed the $2.2 million capital campaign by meeting the Kresge Challenge. Construction is finished and the new Hixon House Adult Shelter for homeless adults without children is operating!
This new building, designed by UK Architects and built by Shepard Construction, is a renovation of the original Haven farmhouse, plus new LEED energy efficient construction. The new shelter has room for up to 20 guests, with two guests in each bedroom. Space includes 10 bedrooms, staff offices, counseling rooms, phone rooms, check-in, an elevator, computer room, kitchen, common areas for dining and recreation, bathrooms, laundry, and storage. Three meals a day are provided for adults residents with their participation. The new Hixon House shelter provides for individuals and couples what the Byrne House Family Shelter provides for families: a safe place to stay while making positive changes in their life.
