Does the haven need furniture or other household items?

Because of our limited storage capacity, we are only able to accept a limited supply of furniture and household items and only if they are in very good condition.

If you have furniture to donate, contact Lindsey Leahy, our Housing2Home coordinator, at (434) 202-5277 ext. 3 or, to see if any of your items could meet the needs of one of our recently housed clients.

How do I drop off these needed items?

Bring needed items directly to The Haven’s day shelter (112 West Market St., Charlottesville) any day between 7:30 a.m. 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 track donations and we can issue you a tax receipt if you want one.
