Imagine being young, pregnant and homeless…

Finding out you are pregnant can be overwhelming and scary for any woman.  Young, homeless single mothers face the added stress of knowing that 42% of children born into poverty are still in poverty a generation later.  What can they do to make sure that homelessness does not turn into hopelessness?

Now imagine The Haven of Grace…

The Haven of Grace is truly that – a haven.  It’s a place where young mothers find a loving support system, a safe space to navigate a healthy pregnancy and programs that set them up for long-term success.  Young moms entering into our programs become a part of The Haven family and are eligible for services for up to 13 years through our three core programs.

“With all the wonderful non-profits in our town, why the interest in The Haven of Grace?  The answer is simple, it comes from an enormous sense of gratitude.  Supporting The Haven with my time, talent and treasure is my way of showing my gratitude for the love, support and guidance shown to me by my parents.  There is tremendous reward in being the catalyst to true change in a mother and child’s life.”
