The Haven of Rest Ministries
Divisions of The Haven of Rest Ministries...
  Since 1956, The Haven has provided emergency food and shelter each night to homeless men on a temporary basis (30-60 days). Pastoral and case management services are available through qualified shelter staff, working in conjunction with local agencies. Referrals are available for clients to receive medical, psychological and legal assistance. Area churches from many denominations provide nightly church services for those wishing to attend.  

The Women's Life Recovery Program, our 10th Ministry


In 2013, the Haven of Rest launched a new program focusing on assisting women, with or without children accompanying them, in exiting a lifestyle of substance abuse, addiction or dependency. Housed at the former Emily Andrus Home, the WLRP can take up to 20 women and 40 children and help them address issues that are keeping them in a cycle of addiction.

The 6 to 12-month program is available free of charge to participants, and based upon the very successful MEN'S Life Recovery Program. Click HERE for a program description, or call 269-441-1701 for more information. A powerpoint presentation is also available HERE.

Interviews for applying to the program are held on a regular basis, every 8 to 12 weeks. You can download an application HERE
