Phase 3

Partnership Phase

This phase which can be well over a year depending on the needs of the family.

We begin with the development of a long-term plan for the family. This plan will contain a series of goals the family needs to achieve to ensure success in pursuing permanent housing and a sustainable lifestyle. Programs are offered, directly or through available community services, and are designed to assist the family in  reaching their goals.

Developing community building skills, by active participation in various support groups and regular attendance at community activities, are an important part of our programs.

Haven House

 

Our services are delivered in a 13,500 sq. ft. facility located on 2 acres in a park like setting well suited for families and our programs. The building has 36 units with family private baths and a capacity for 15 to 18 families. We were fortunate in 2015 to be able to purchase this previously rented facility thereby securing a permanent home for our services.

In 2018 we acquired a 450 sq.ft. building that is used as a Learning Center for the parents and children.

If you are homeless this is a great program to help get you back on your feet. Rose and Ryan are awesome and will help you every step of the way. I'm very grateful they do what that do.

Thank you for taking the time to show Irv Haven House. I know he was particularly moved when he heard about the Olathe football captain taking a resident under his wing. Irv was impressed with the number of families served and the successes achieved by you both.
Thank you for the effort.
