Thank you for considering a donation to Friends of the Haven.
Past support from very generous donors, like you, has allowed us to build a new Baby Haven, which opened in 2011; fund mental health counselors; remodel the 1880s buildings around the Fort Logan Campus; establish an education endowment to provide academic scholarships for graduates of the Haven programs; and to meet many ongoing program needs for the The Haven and The Baby Haven. We cannot continue to help women struggling with substance use and mental health disorders or their children without your support. THANK YOU!
Although the Haven works with a variety of public and private funding sources, women with unique situations continue to fall through the cracks. They need financial assistance throughout their treatment.
