Adopt-A-Shelter 2022

Haven House provides basic needs for the families in our shelter, and for those families in our Partners in Progress program who have moved into their own homes. These items are occasionally purchased, but much of what our families receive was generously donated by members of the community.

Adopt-A-Shelter runs throughout the holidays for those looking to give back during the holiday season individually, as a group, or with a business. We are seeking new cleaning, hygiene, baby, and household items we provide in an exit package for our shelter families who move into their new homes and those in our aftercare program. The list of needed items can be found below and purchased from the store of your choice or conveniently found on our Amazon Wishlist and ships straight to our door!

All in person donations are being accepted Monday-Friday by appointment only. Please contact the Volunteer & Projects Manager by email or (517) 348-0691 to schedule your appointment. 

*If you are looking to host a donation drive, please email to discuss the drive items and potential drop-off date.*
