Ridgway Families Host 8th Annual Wine & Cheese

We are so appreciative of the great families in Ridgway Colorado who hosted their 8th Annual Wine and Cheese fundraiser for Haven House. The spread of food, good wine and festive socializing brought out more than 70 neighbors and friends to support the Haven House program. Here are just a few of the smiles generated at the event.

Hosted by the Del Rossi, Wiens, Ardoin and Fredericksen families.

Altrusa of Montrose brings makeover to every family!

All of the suites at Haven House received makeovers from the generous people of Altrusa Montrose. They provided new bedding, curtains, towels and rugs to bring a new “homey” feel to the families living there. It was a wonderful day of hard work, fun and blessings from these lovely people. Thank you so much!

Altrusa of Montrose, Altrusa of Delta, Heirlooms for Hospice and the Colorado Lions Club and contributed to the wonderful makeovers!

It is hard to express just how much the makeovers meant to the families at Haven House, but this smile certainly says a lot!

All the beds and the private baths received new items. The Participants of the Haven House program were over-joyed.

Parents have adjoining bedrooms to their kids room separated by a private bath for the family.

THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS! WE  GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR COMMITMENT TO OUR

“DRIVE TO END HOMELESSNESS”

It was a beautiful day for golf, spirits were high and the turnout was the maximum number of golfers allowed. Our thanks to everyone that played, attended the Silent Auction and especially the volunteers that worked so hard and the Participants from Haven House that provided such wonderful food.

It was a great event.

Volunteers: The Kaperman Family

The circle of receiving blessings naturally leads to giving blessings.

The Participants at Haven House took time from their schedule this month to volunteer at the Sharing Ministries Food Bank. Both the adults and children enjoyed the hard work and the feeling of helping others. As life becomes more stable for families, they become more aware of being a blessing to others. The transformation process takes time and Participants can live at Haven House for 24 months while they achieve their short and long term goals.

Graduation Day for Another Family

CONGRATULATIONS to Robert and Jessica and their three children who graduated this Tuesday into a home of their own. You will all be missed and everyone wishes you God’s blessings in your new home.

Rain Can’t Dampen the Golfer Spirit!

Our 2nd Annual Golf Scramble was a big success even though it rained most of the morning. Golfers kept their commitment to the tournament and many played the entire course. With food and hot drinks in the clubhouse to re-energize the golfers and the many Silent Auction items to pa-ruse, the spirit of helping the homeless families shined through. Thanks to everyone that supported this event, our biggest fundraiser of the year!

                  

    

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!

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!

Posted by Haven House on Saturday, July 22, 2017

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.

Golf Scramble a Great Success- Thank you all!

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.
