Where People Find Hope and Discover Possibility

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.

Did you know in 2003 the toothbrush was chosen as the #1 invention people couldn't live without, winning over cellphones and cars?!

The toothbrush and toothpaste are two of the first items we all grab in the morning to prepare us for the day. 🦷🪥 The Haven is very low on both and would greatly appreciate support from our community. If you have any room in your budget, please consider donating toothbrushes and toothpastes to the Haven. Everyone deserves to have good hygiene! Thank you.

The Upper Valley Haven is looking for a Children’s Services Associate to help support and foster growth and resiliency in children.

This position is part of the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board AmeriCorps (VHCB AmeriCorps). The VHCB AmeriCorps program supports the innovative dual-goal approach to creating stable affordable housing opportunities for Vermont residents while preserving the natural and working landscape.
