Thankful quotes from our Participants

I am especially thankful for this home!! I couldn't ask to be in a better place, especially this time of the year! We love you all." - Deanna, Haven House Participant

"I'm so thankful and so grateful for everything Haven House has provided for me and my family. Thankful for having a place to call home and having a warm bed to come home to at night and food on the table. I'm grateful for having all my friends and family here at Haven House. I love and thank Haven House for everything they have done for us and thank God above all." - Aubriel, 14 - Daughter of Participant Family

Let Us Not Forget The Needy.....

Psalm 9:18: The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.

Please consider giving this Thanksgiving. As we are reminded in Psalm 82:3 "Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and oppressed." While we are so grateful for all we have, let us not forget others who are less fortunate. We at Haven House give our all to offering a sanctuary to those afflicted and less fortunate and your support means the world to us.
