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.

Marline graduated the Haven House program on February 12, 2016. Her graduation party included well wishers and happy faces of her children and friends. As she acknowledges in her testimonial letter, this is a culmination of hard work with big rewards and she has put in the work to set the goals to make the future even better.

A heartwarming story that shows the Haven House program is an All-Inclusive answer to many of the elements that result in the homeless condition. We don’t plan on letting anyone stay in that condition who has the desire to transition back to a rewarding, self-supporting life. With help from the community of participants living at Haven House and the loving supportive and instructive staff and volunteers, no one has the reason to say “it can’t happen for me”. CONGRATULATIONS MARLINE AND FAMILY.

 

 

 

Local groups share love at Haven House

Montrose Press article…..

With an ill husband, autistic son and traumatized daughter, it’s an understatement to say Amy Barrett is dealing with a tremendous burden.

She isn’t shouldering it alone, though. Barrett and her family are among those who call Haven House Transitional Living Center in Olathe home.

“My family was the victim of a crime,” Barrett explained, as she sat in Haven House’s playroom Dec. 21, her words contrasting with the rush of activity in the halls, as residents prepared for a Christmas “shopping spree.”

“My husband took it hard. He got sick and was unable to work. I was taking care of him and our children. We tried for me to work. It didn’t work out,” she said  READ MORE click links below.
