The Haven is a dynamic, multi-purpose community space. It enhances our city by providing a centralized location for resource providers, a commercial kitchen, a day haven, a community garden, and a cultural and arts space in downtown Charlottesville. The Haven is in a beautifully renovated church and annex building, across from Lee Park and one block from the public library.
The Haven has adopted a Housing First approach to ending homelessness. We understand that homelessness is a housing crisis, and the solution to homelessness is housing. With this in mind, we facilitate Homeless Prevention, Coordinated Assessment, Housing Navigation, Housing Stabilization, and coordinate with Thrive to administer Rapid Re-Housing.
