The Haven of Rest receives very little governmental support for its programs and services. It relies on the generosity and caring of area residents, church congregations, businesses, charitable foundations and others. Your support helps The Haven, and its seven major programs, literally serve thousands of very low income, at risk and homeless people each year.

1) mail your donation to us

The Haven of Rest Ministries
11 Green Street
Battle Creek, MI 49014

For information on critical needs of The Haven, or how to donate, contact:
Daniel Jones, 269/965.1148, ext. 16.

2) The Haven also welcomes in-kind donations

• Food of any kind
• Vehicles/property/Stocks (please call ahead)
• Limited Office and Home Furniture (please call ahead)

3) Planned Giving

We hope community members keep the needs and programs of The Haven in mind when they decide on estate and planning giving. A charitable bequest to The Haven (perhaps as a memorial to a family member or other lovedone) can have lasting impact and community benefit. Donations to The Haven do not have to be in the form of monetary funds. You might decide to contribute land, a house, or a car. Any requests or questions on planned giving, please call The Haven at 269-965-1148 and ask to speak with Elaine Hunsicker, Executive Director, or Daniel Jones, Fund Development Coordinator.

4) We Accept Credit Cards!

Do you prefer to do your charitable giving through your credit or bank card? We now have a system in place where you can donate to the Haven through an online organization called Network For Good. Network For Good allows donations to come through their portal and then be forwarded on to us. Please visit to get more information about this giving opportunity and any fees associated with this method of giving.

5) Turn Your Online Shopping & Searching
Into Donations for The Haven!

Did you know you can use a "special search engine" to shop online, and that a portion of your purchase amount will be donated to support The Haven of Rest? Plus you get free shopping deals and exclusive coupons, on top of the great deals you'll find every day through a network of 700+ stores. Even if you are not shopping online, you can use to raise a penny for The Haven every time you search the web!
