This Year's Project:
About Our Organization
Haven House services began 40 years ago with an all-volunteer staff so we truly are aware of the challenges of sustaining programs. Our mission is to empower survivors of domestic and sexual violence to resume control of their lives. We are committed to eliminating violence in the lives of men, women and children through empowerment, education, and social action. Over the past fiscal year we served 356 victims in our 5-county service area; annual served in Dakota County alone was 229 victims.
Haven House Emergency Shelter Enhancement Project
Haven House is looking for funds to help enhance the living space at our domestic violence and sexual assault emergency shelter. Currently our shelter needs new flooring and minor interior and exterior updates. We are looking to replace the flooring in our entry way, kitchen, living room, hallway, and two bedrooms. We are hoping to be able to put in laminate floors to help upkeep the cleanliness and sanitation in our shelter on a daily basis. This funding will also help us reach our goal to make it a more bright and pleasant environment for our families with children.
