Why did you want to work at The Haven?
I wanted to work at the Haven because I wanted to be a part of a positive change that helps young ladies who are pregnant and have children better themselves.  I was once a teenage mother, who was homeless and want to show other ladies that with a plan and help, goals can be achieved.

My dream for The Haven is:
My dream for the Haven is to continue to be a positive organization in the community that serves women and assists them with achieving goals of being self-sufficient in independent living while caring for their children.  I also would like to see an increase in donors helping the Haven
