Urgent Needs

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.

Haven House is currently accepting donations only by USPS or private mail carrier.  You can also purchase items off of our Amazon wish list

Additional Needs

Shelter ItemsFamily Items

When donated, these items are given to families as they move out of the shelter into their own permanent, affordable housing. A household items drive is a great way to help out families.

Personal Supplies

These items are used by residents while in the shelter and also, when available, given to families as they move into permanent housing. Unfortunately we can no longer accept travel-sized items.



Items we do not accept:

Because of our very limited space, there are some items we are not able to take.

Thank you for your support of homeless families in temporary shelter seeking permanent housing.
