Day Haven

A volunteer mans the Welcome Desk

The Day Haven provides the homeless and very poor with a safe place to be during the day. As a day shelter, the Day Haven offers a living-room like space in which people may play games, read books, or watch television. Furnished with comfortable chairs and couches, this room provides people with a cool space in the summer and a warm space in the winter to get out of the elements. Contact for more information on the Day Haven.
