Click here to read  Marline’s testimonial-2.2016 

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.

With donated gifts and lots of hard work from volunteers, the Shepherd’s Shopping Spree at Haven House was a huge success! A truck loaded with donated gifts arrived at Haven House and staff and participants were waiting to help unload the haul. All participants at Haven House worked extra chores to receive tickets to shop for their families, including the children who used their homework club, Whiz kids and youth group points to shop for their families. The Dolphin House and Haven House  graduates were also invited to participate. God filled the house with love, patience, and giving hearts!!

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.
