On behalf of Haven House Emergency Shelter, please allow me to thank you for your interest in our Christian ministry.
Haven House Emergency Shelter, the only shelter in Butler County that accepts children and does not utilize government funding, has been in existence for 33 years.
We are able to continue helping those in need 24 hours a day, 7 days a week solely from contributions made by individuals, churches and local businesses. As a result of the various donations our shelter receives, we are able to stay open 365 days a year.
Haven House benefits those in need from Butler, Warren, Hamilton and Clermont counties. In the past year, we have seen a 18% increase in the people helped by our shelter. Overall, the shelter has provided over 450,000 nights of shelter and served over 1,750,000 meals.
Our shelter is equipped to assist homeless families. We accept single mothers, married couples with children and are the only homeless shelter in the tri-state that accepts single fathers with their children.
The Bible says in Psalms 41:1, “Blessed is he that considereth the poor; the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.” We at Haven House are grateful for those who help us in our ministry to assist those in need. We believe in the calling that we have answered to help the homeless in our community.
