The Upper Valley Haven is a private nonprofit that provides support and assistance to community members struggling with poverty in Vermont and New Hampshire. We meet people where they are, address immediate needs through food and shelter, and offer longer-term solutions that foster independence and housing stability. Everyone deserves to have their basic needs met and a community is stronger when we offer a hand up to our most vulnerable neighbors.

Nothing would be possible without the support of our community and for that we are eternally grateful. At The Haven over 70% of our operating budget comes from private companies and individual donations. Using your gift carefully is how we honor our donors. We couldn’t do our important work without you, thank you!
At the Haven we are seeing a direct correlation between the number of Food Shelf visitors and the cost of basic necessities. As retail prices increase, so does the number of Food Shelf visitors. Lately we have been reaching 90 visitors a DAY. 😮 As you can imagine, we need *your* help to refill our personal items inventory and more. Our wish list is up-to-date with our most needed items. Please check it out and #donate. We accept financial donations online and mailed as well as Amazon donations mailed to our address. Thank you in advance!
The kids kicked the year off with a bake sale this week in support of @chadkids. This was a great opportunity for them to learn the importance of selfless acts of services and build their communication skills. Each kid had a chance to communicate with community members and express why they were having a bake sale. The turnout was great and the kids had a blast selling the homemade treats! 😋 #CHadHERO...
Our stock of personal items is running low. Please donate shampoo, soap, and deodorant to our Food Shelf to help provide our neighbors with basic hygiene products.

While meals are free for students this year, your school still needs you to complete a school meal application. When you return your school meal application, you are helping your student, your school, and our entire community. When more students turn in school meal applications, that means more money for education in the cafeteria and the classroom.
