Haven House Approach

 

Haven House’s goal is to break the cycle of poverty two generations at a time by empowering four low income young single mothers (ages 18-24) and their dependents. Our caring, structured, and supportive home helps them to become mindful, self-sufficient, and engaged members of society. We believe that the cycle of poverty and homelessness is broken through education and community.  

Haven House’s Program:

  • Supportive community with a higher standard of living

  • Physical exercise program

  • Community building infrastructure

  • Tailored community college education at Mercer County Community College

  • Nurturing child care at Lakeview Child center
