Haven Ministry opened its doors in April 1991.

About two years earlier, concerned citizens from various churches realized that there were a growing number of area residents who found themselves unable to provide the basic necessities of food and shelter.

These concerned citizens formed a committee to look for solutions. With contributions and support from individuals, churches, and grants, the committee was able to establish Haven Ministry and purchase a building and supplies to care for their neighbors in need.

Haven Ministry is a non-profit organization guided by a Board of Directors composed of both clergy and lay people.

Since its inception, Haven Ministry has grown by expanding its physical plant through two major additions and developing its financial support and procedures.
