The Haven of TC C/O
The Haven and Haven Family House
The Haven operates as an 18 bed overnight shelter to temporarily house homeless men and women. It provides a respite for those who have suddenly and unexpectedly fallen into homelessness or have been chronically homeless.
Unlike most other shelters The Haven does not make the residents stay in line every day to get a bed. Once an intake is completed the person has a bed and as long as they participate in the program can stay as long as it needs to get housed.
The program requires residents to seek employment, apply for housing, take classes like parenting, cooking, etc., seek mental health care, seek job training etc.
The staff at The Haven will do everything to connect those seeking help with the services they need.
The Haven always holds bed open for veterans and has great relations with veteran services in our region to assist homeless veterans.
The Haven Family House operates a four bedroom house designed to provide a safe, secure environment for families that no longer can afford housing on their own.
The Haven is the only Family shelter in WNC that does not separate fathers from their families. Each family has a private bedroom and the Haven staff work with all members of the family and connects them to the services they need to get back on their feet.
