The Haven relies overwhelmingly upon support from the community to carry out its mission. Support comes in a myriad of ways, including financial donations, volunteer time, and donations of food and clothing.
Over 70% of the Haven’s revenues come directly from individuals who make donations by check, credit card, or gifts of stock. We couldn’t do it without you!
The Haven thrives with the support of numerous volunteers from the community. Last year, over 11,000 volunteer hours were logged at the Haven. There are many different volunteer opportunities ranging from serving on the Board of Directors to tutoring kids in the Haven’s After School Program. Visit our Volunteer pages to learn more.
Organize a Food Drive
The Haven receives one-third of its food through food drives. Organize one among your neighbors, business or church. Contact Jennifer Fontaine for more information.
Clean Out Your Closet
Over 400 people visit the Haven’s free Clothing Room every month. Donations need to be clean, new or gently-used, and seasonal.
