We would not be able to stay open without donations of supplies, money, and time from our supportive neighbors, friends, and other generous folks in the community. Thank you for helping your homeless neighbors at The Haven!
Due to storage concerns, we are not able to accept other clothing, coats or shoes. Please take these donations to the Belmont Clothing Center, or Hinton Avenue Clothing Closet, where our guests are able to obtain clothing free of charge.
PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT CURRENTLY NEED SOAP!

Kitchen and Food Items:
We appreciate donations of coffee, sugar, and coffee mugs, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables in the winter. We have limited storage in our kitchen. We are unable to accept opened boxed goods, and rarely use canned goods.
Donations of supplies can be dropped off directly at the Day Shelter at 112 West Market Street every day between 7:30am and 12 noon. If you have something to drop off after noon on weekdays, please use the annex/office building entrance and our staff will be happy to accept your gifts! When you get here, we ask that you take a minute to fill out a brief form to help us track donations, and to be able to issue you a tax receipt if you want one.
Got Furniture or other household items?
Due to limited storage capacity, we are only able to accept a limited supply of these types of items, and only if they are in very good condition. Please contact our Housing2Home coordinator, Lindsey Leahy at 434-202-5277 ext. 3, or email@example.com to see if any items you have are a match for one of our recently-housed clients.
