Welcome to Haven House
"They helped me build my
self-respect and self-esteem, and
helped me rebuild my life."
- former resident
Haven House provides emergency housing and support services for one-parent and two-parent families with children. The shelter helps families who are homeless prepare for permanent housing by developing and promoting self-sufficiency, stability, and financial responsibility.
In addition to housing, residents receive meals, crisis counseling, assistance with goal setting and referral to other agencies as needed.
Partners in Progress is a transitional housing program to assist families after they leave the shelter. A Haven House staff member works with former residents to set realistic goals and monitor progress in employment, budgeting, and help connecting with the neighborhood and the community. During 2012 we helped 100 families successfully transition into permanent housing. More About Us

Haven House 30th Anniversary

Several years ago local artists and Haven House residents offered their artwork to be used as part of a holiday greeting card fundraiser. The response has been so great that we continue to offer this option several times throughout the year. Now is your chance to be part of this time honored tradition!
2013 marks our 30th year of service to the community! For 30 years, Haven House in East Lansing has partnered with the community to fulfill its mission of providing emergency housing and support services for one-parent and two-parent families with children. We also help homeless families prepare for permanent housing by developing and promoting self-sufficiency, stability, and financial responsibility through several programs.
