Mission: “Hope Haven, a foundation of recovery, provides life skills for homeless, chemically dependent adults and families within a supportive residential environment, leading to independence.”
Our programs are meant to help people in recovery rebuild their lives by providing them with the support services and life skills needed to achieve long term recovery and self-sufficiency. Residents participate in a 90-day training program in the areas of laundry, culinary, catering, or maintenance and then continue on to search for employment with the help of our employment specialists. There are four levels of recovery at Hope Haven. By keeping a job and working their program, residents can move up in levels, gaining privileges and living a more independent lifestyle. Hope Haven asks for a minimum commitment of six months to our program, but residents can stay for up to two years.
