The Haven House Board of Directors is responsible for regularly assessing the mission, for determining that the mission is consistent with the needs of the community and for carrying out the mission. It also sets policy, approves the budget, defines acceptance criteria, hires key staff and manages fund raising. Each board member shares in the responsibility of developing good community relations, attracting volunteers and financial support and taking responsibility for completing certain tasks essential to the success of Haven House. At the present time, 100% of the board members contribute financially to Haven House.
The Board meets monthly and three of the Board members are active in operations ensuring a free flow of views and information between operations and the Board. These 3 Board members meet weekly with staff and some volunteers again to ensure that information and views are shared and discussed. We hold weekly Town Hall meetings to bring together the Participants and staff to obtain feedback on the programs’ applicability to the Participants and day to day operating rules.
