Poker Run Really Was A HOME RUN!

We had a very successful, fun and productive Poker Run last Saturday. The turn out of more than 45 bike riders for the Poker Run was more than we ever expected. Thank you to every single person that participated in the Poker Run, bought a Raffle Ticket, joined us for the BBQ and some people off the street that came by and made a donation. The families at Haven House put on an excellent party and the food was good and plentiful. It would have been hard work for anyone to say they did not have a great day!

We talked to many riders who offered suggestions on how we can improve our ride next  year, so plan now to be part of the 2018 Home Run Poker Run for homeless families.

 

Awesome event today and if you are ever curious about what these fundraisers lead to, please check out this video of my son Brannon James playing guitar. He has only had 12 lessons but found a gift thanks only to the lessons provided by (PAID FOR BY) HavenHouse through instructor Bill Mall. I do all the posting on here and rarely ever get personal but this brought tears to a mama's eyes. Haven House is the real deal. Love and thanks to this amazing facility and its supporters!

This is one of the children living at Haven House who has taken advantage of the guitar lessons provided for free to the families. After two months, he is doing great! Our Child Development Programs are just part of the many programs we offer to help families return to a home of their own.

Your support is always appreciated.

Despite very cold temperatures and windy conditions our “Drive to End Homelessness” was a great success raising $13,000. Every single registered golfer showed up and participated in our 1st Annual Golf Fundraiser. Many people said that it was the extreme playing conditions that made it a memorable event for them. It also brought to their minds the plight of homeless families without a place to stay.

Thanks for Coming…What a night it was!

If you missed attending the May 6th Open House Birthday Celebration, you missed a wonderful event. The Participants living at Haven House worked very hard and put on a beautiful and delicious dinner.  The children diligently served the dinner, taking your order for salad dressing, regular or gluten free pasta, vegetarian or meat sauce and your drink choice. What a treat it was! Desert allowed another choice of chocolate or spice cake and the kids were on it to get your order right.

The many guests that were able to attend were inspired by the brave women who told their stories of how life brought them to Haven House. Guests came away with a new point of view regarding our programs that restore families to independent living. This night allowed them to understand just how important their support is to Haven House.

Please take a minute to revisit that evening through the photos and videos we have posted. Then consider making a reoccurring monthly donation of any amount to keep the success stories happening. God Bless you and thank you for your interest.
