In their most recent newsletter, The Telluride Foundation recognized the work of Haven House!

Nonprofit Corner: Haven House

Haven House is a faith based non-profit that provides temporary housing and wrap around services to families and their children in Southwest Colorado. Haven House prevents homelessness with their Transitional Housing and Career Development Programs by providing hope, shelter, guidance, counseling and support programs designed to help those families get back into permanent housing on a path to self-sufficiency. Haven House helps the children of these families with their Child Development and Early Childhood Programs, keeping children in school and teaching their parents how to be nurturing and constructive supporters of their child’s social, physical and academic development.

The Telluride Foundation recognizes the hard work of Haven House and the pressing needs it responds to. In 2019 Haven House expects to provide over 19,000 shelter nights, an increase of 15% from 2018. Presently, there are 71 participants living at Haven House, including 47 children, compared to the 41 participants (including 20 children) at the end of August last year. As a nonprofit, Haven House is dependent on the support of the community to continue service to the homeless. Less than 10% of their funding comes from government sources; the remainder comes from individuals, businesses, churches and foundations such as the Telluride Foundation.
